 Floating Point Formats

The ATARI 400/800/1200 computers had routines built in to there ROMs
that did float BCD computations. If you used ATARI basic from the
cartradge your computations would use the BCD. It was great...a bit
slower but gave good numbers. The computation slowness was made up by
the fact it had actualy 4 cpus. The 6502, and then ANTIC for the
graphics, one for the sound, and one dealing with IO (the disk drives,
tape recorder, and the for joystick/paddle ports).
