Abstract: This EAE patch was specifically designed for the KES/E and
uses Mode B instructions. Both 3 and 4 word versions of the multiply and
divide routines are included. The normalize routine has also been
rewritten. Total space available is 78 words (10 digit version). Multiply
time is reduced by a factor of 18.5 (4.5 times faster than the regular EAE
patch) with the results rounded off instead of being truncated. A I-bit
normalization is performed 2-3 times faster. Programmers with KE8-I or
KE12 hardward should request DECUS NO. FOCAL8-283.
