      Someone was looking for 1802 floating point math routines. I ran across
      an article in an old Dr. Dobbs Journal (DDJ #37, page 17) entitled "A
      Floating Point Subroutine Package for the 1802" by Paul Wasserman. A
      printed hex listing of the routines was included.

      The code runs from 0100 to 07AF, and includes instructions for moving it
      to other addresses. It stores floating point numbers in 6 bytes, which
      supports a range of 10^-39 to 10^+38. Subroutines are included for + - *
      / square root, decimal-to-binary, and binary-to-decimal conversion.
      Engineers like to solve problems. If there are no problems handily
      available, they will create their own problems. -- Scott Adams
