: Yes, you specify the precision on the command line. Look at the

: source for the driver that I supplied and the usage is obvious.

For precision 100, 1000 or 10,000, please specify: x = ?, y = ?;

You may also point to a file containing the high precision numbers.

You supply the on the command line to the main() program as the first

argument passed into main, as is clear from the snippet shown below.

I guess you are not a C++ programmer.

int

main(int argc, char *argv[])

{

int n, prec, st, st2, N, i;

if (argc != 2 && argc != 3) {

fprintf(stderr, "Usage: timing digits \n"); exit(1);

}

n = atoi(argv[1]);

float_format_t precision = float_format(n);

cl_F x = sqrt (cl_float (3, precision)) - 1;

cl_F y = sqrt (cl_float (5, precision));

cl_F z;

cout << "Prec=" << precision << endl;
