RE: Decimal floating point to binary floating point
I've not checked the datasheet, but you mentioned single precision in the opening comment. Double precision won't be fast if it is done in software.
An alternative approach would be to use the floating point hardware to produce initial approximations for the decimal float library. Intel's decimal library does this in places. Pauli
