I am tring to take a double-float number, break it down into 2 long
integers (high-word and low-word) to send over the network conforming to
the IEEE floating point standard. I also want to read 2 words from the
stream and make a double-float from them. Any Ideas? Symbolics has two
functions that do what I want: "si:dfloat-components: (double)" &
"si:%make-double: (high low)" Any way to do this with the mac?
In the foreign function interface there are two functions which you can use to
get a handle on doubles: %put-double and %get-double.
