[COPLIN, Nicholas.]  unfortunately I know no german :(

[COPLIN, Nicholas.]  not really... I have a BASIC program to do binary to
decimal, and understand the basic sign/exponent/mantessa terms... but am
stumped on the reverse calculation....

[COPLIN, Nicholas.]  I need to convert 1000+ numbers currently in an PC
document.... I did think of doing each one-by-one, or reading/writing them
from/to a file... but as I'm still developing what the numbers should be I
would prefer a set of equations I could use in my spreadsheet....

Regards, Nick
