Have a look at *DEFAULT-FLOAT-FORMAT* and *READ-DEFAULT-FLOAT-FORMAT*
or use the 3.0001l0 (see CLtLII p.18ff) syntax.
If you need more precision than the default for long-floats, have a
look at (LONG-FLOAT-DIGITS) and (SETF (LONG-FLOAT-DIGITS) nn).

Before I got enough memory to run GNU-Emacs, I used MG (aka
MicroGNUEmacs) which comes pretty close. To be found on Fish 352. You can
get a modified version that displays ISO chars from me.

The only Amiga-specific source so far is rexx.lsp. Plans are to port
stdwin to the Amiga, but that's more of C than LISP hacking. Other
plans are the creation of a good (portable, not Amiga-only) alien
package in order to be able to call all .library functions, but no
work has been done on that for some time now. Other plans are to
improve the ARexx interface a little bit. So far the way to do
graphics is to use some ARexx support package that allows access to
any library functions. The next best thing in the future would be the
use of the portable STDWIN library.
