Reading 64 bit IEEE floating point from a file
I would like to use a C-program to read a binary database that was written using 8-byte words (IEEE double precision - probably by a Fortran program). I already have the C code to read the database when the database has been written in single precision (4-byte word). My Borland C 5.02 compiler has no types above 32-bit size.
If Fortran wrote it then I would like to believe C could read it! Do I need a different complier? Or is there anyway I can make this work with my current compiler? I am on a W2K 32-bit intel computer.
