Abstract : The report describes a revision to FLOD, a double-precision floating point package for the LINC. The present revision corrects an error in the Add routine, requires fewer memory locations, and is slightly faster than the original program. The functional description of Flod-1R is exactly identical to that of the original program FLOD. Since the original report also described a matching single-precision floating point package, FLOS, the report also describes FLOS. Although FLOS has not been revised, it is given the revised name FLOS-1R in this report. (Modified author abstract)
