In /usr/include/sys/acct.h comp_t is defined as u_short but the comment

is that comp_t is "a 3 bits base 8 exponent, 13 bit fraction ``floating

point'' number."

I'd like to convert this to a float or preferrably a double. Is there

an existing system call or function on SunOS to do this that I'm not finding?

E-mail replies are best....
