I am interested in a fast algorithm (source code in either Pascal or C

would be nice, but not essential) that would take a floating point number

(base 2) and convert it to a string (base 10). I can think of some ways

to do this, but I am interested if there are any post-Knuth tricks out

there. Please respond directly

Thanks,

Bruce
