Hi everyone.

Thanks to Kit Baum, the module doubletofloat is now available on SSC.

This is a companion/extension to -compress-. It recasts (where possible without loss of precision) double variables to float.

Another related and similar module is floattolong, which was issued back in August. This now has a revised .hlp file.

Both of these are very simple, but possibly useful. They are meant to be used with -compress-; they do a few things I wish -compress- did.
