Abstract:

A collection of ANSI Standard FORTRAN subroutines for performing multiple-precision floating-point arithmetic and evaluating elementary and special functions is described. The subroutines are machine-independent and the precision is arbitrary, subject to storage limitations. In this paper the design of the package is discussed, some of the algorithms are described, and test results and an example are given. The complete package is available from the author.
