Programming questions




Forgive me if there's an obvious answer to this...

Is there any way to read in ints and floats at
a decent speed in Limbo?  The only way I can
find seems to involve undocumented functions
bits32real(), bits64real(), realbits32(),
and realbits64() in math.m.  What, exactly,
do they do?

It looks like I have to call one of these
function for every float I read in.  Yes?
Isn't that a lot of overhead?

Where does the input come from?  These functions
take ints and bigs.  Does Limbo have a nice way
to read ints or bigs?

Thanks,
John
