Howdy All!
I need to combine two 16-bit values into a single 32-bit float. That is, I have a float (32 bits)that has been broken into two shorts (16 bits each) and I need to recombine the shorts to recreate the value. It's easy to make an int out of them, but you can't use bit operators on a floating point number.
Thanks!
Pa

...though we should probably point out that our display name policy does forbid "obviously fictitious" names. Please edit your profile to change it to a real name (or at least, one that looks real). Although you do get points for a nice clever one that even fits in pretty well with our ranch motif. Thanks.
