    Re: Floating-Point 4-place Nat-Haversine Table
    From: Tony Oz

    Dear Roger,

    I decided to implement the "belt with suspenders" approach:

    • the number of leading zeroes is denoted by an underbarred-subscript;
    • the number of leading nines is denoted by an overbarred-superscript;
    • these numbers are moved to the right of the decimal point - where the supposed stuffing is actually taking place;
    • the comma is used as decimal point for numbers not undergoing the transformations.

    Please comment if this is better or worse still.

    Warm regards,

    Tony
