just a few Simple Assembly Question on the REALs DATA. Real4 accepts only number that has decimal point. What I want to know is what's the max you can have for the one on the RIGHT and LEFT? myreal real4 0.0 left.right and how does it encode the number? <--- optional answer if you know, otherwise, you can ignore that last question. thanx.
I dont know the answer, but i know its in the floating point section of the Art Of Assembly
(+ -)1.18x10^(-38) - > (+ -)3.40x10^(38) (normalized) in float(single precision) you have 32 bits to jiggle around. for sign is 1 bit, for mantisa are 23, and for exponent are 8. for some more reference check IEEE-754.
