Example text

The standard was developed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE, pronounced I-triple-E) and is referred to as IEEE 754. Fortunately, the IEEE 754 standard has been adopted by all of the major computer manufacturers. Modern central processing units (CPUs) can usually do at least one floating-point operation (flop) per clock cycle. With current clock rates well above 1 GHz, most modern workstations and personal computers can perform more than 1 billion floating-point calculations per second (referred to as 1 gigaflop).

0, not 1. The basic IEEE floating-point type uses 32 bits (4 bytes). This is referred to as a single-precision floating-point number (FLOAT). In a single-precision floating-point number, 1 bit is used to indicate the sign of the number, 8 bits for the exponent (positive and negative), and 23 bits for the fraction. 4 × 1038 . 2 × 10−38 . Many numbers that can be written exactly with only a few decimal digits cannot be written in binary notation with a finite number of bits. 4 × 10−45 . The technical details are not of importance here.

Pro. 2. The PLOT command above uses several keyword parameters: TITLE, XTITLE, and YTITLE. These keywords are used to pass the various strings containing titles to the PLOT procedure. Because of the length of the titles, the PLOT command does not fit on a single line. In IDL the $ character is used to continue a command on the following line. Each line of the PLOT command has the continuation character ($), except the last. As the first line of the PLOT command demonstrates, you can place a comment on a line even if it is continued.
