c This program demonstrates base 2 conversion round-off error.
c For x and y, single precision round-off error occurs at the
c 9th digit. For z, double precision round-off error does not
c occur until the 17th digit. Although y is a double precision
c variable, its value is prescribed only in single precision,
c and so double precision is lost.
