I am looking for information regarding the implementation of IEEE
Floating Point

I found the standard at Fatbrain.com

And there a a few books the come back from a search, but this is a
'pig in a poke'

These books are too expensive to buy them and then see if they are

[Depends what you have in mind. Do you want to write math libraries to
IEEE precision? Implement the basic operations in hardware? In software?
