Called from ?lamc2. Determines machine parameters given by beta, t, rnd, ieee1.
INTEGER. The base of the machine.
INTEGER. The number of (beta) digits in the mantissa.
Specifies whether proper rounding (
rnd = .TRUE.) or chopping (
rnd = .FALSE.) occurs in addition. This may not be a reliable guide to the way in which the machine performs its arithmetic.
Specifies whether rounding appears to be done in the ieee 'round to nearest' style.
