Changing the convergence check from 1E-14 to 1E-24 equals roughly half an iteration (on average). ;-) I am not sure if I understand this correctly, but do you say that CNVG? 00 which usually tests a relative error < 1E–14 automatically switches to 1E–24 if run in XROM? I think that 1E–14 is on the safe side.

Yes, that makes sense since this is what can be achieved with 34-digit user code. The one or other last digit may be off. For my earlier humble contributions to the 34s project I tried to get 32 digits +/– 1 ULP.
