It does this both by comparing some numbers in the manner described above for 7 , 8 , and 9 decimal digits , and also by using an algorithm to

It does this both by comparing some numbers in the manner described above for 7 , 8 , and 9 decimal digits , and also by using an algorithm to

**compute**any reasonable internal accuracy . Since such an algorithm is highly sensitive to the ... Page 31

Given an internal precision of at least d decimal digits , we simply require that the

**computed**value for f ( x ) ( hereinafter denoted by " cf ( x ) " ) be some value actually taken on by the function within the domain [ x - e , x + e ) ... Page 32

... there is no closer internal form . all we know is that the source argument is somewhere within that set and all we require is that the

**computed**value of the function be true for some ( probably different ) argument within the set . Page 33

For example , those interested in high accuracy , or implementors whose machines carry more than six digits , should examine closely the

For example , those interested in high accuracy , or implementors whose machines carry more than six digits , should examine closely the

**computed**value and true value to see if the accuracy is what they expect . . 5.7 FOR - NEXT . Page 42
