2018 January 20

Berkeley SoftFloat is a software implementation of binary floating-point that
conforms to the IEEE Standard for Floating-Point Arithmetic.
SoftFloat is distributed in the form of C source code.
Building the SoftFloat sources generates a library file (typically
softfloat.a or libsoftfloat.a) containing the
floating-point subroutines.

The SoftFloat package is documented in the following files in the
doc subdirectory:

SoftFloat.html Documentation for using the SoftFloat functions.
SoftFloat-source.html Documentation for building SoftFloat.
SoftFloat-history.html    History of the major changes to SoftFloat.

Other files in the package comprise the source code for SoftFloat.
