From: Christophe Raffalli <Christophe.Raffalli@u...>
Subject: OCaml float size


Does anyone knows of an architecture where OCaml floats have more than 
64 bits ? I have just one computation to run that requires more than 64 
bits ...
So getting a hand on such an architecture would be simpler that writing 
a library to access the Intel extended precision ...
Moreover, I would have to always box the extended with a big speed 
penalty ... and my computation is long (count in month !)

Thanks for any hint,
Christophe Raffalli
