I have a calculation intense program that I am writing. I was

wondering if in general it is worth my time to hand load the

FPU with inline asm instead to totally relying on compiled code.

There are a few functions that the program uses a lot.

I am very weak with asm so additional effort will be required by

me to come up on the learning curve.

If good performance improvements can be realized with asm then

does anyone know of the algorithm to raise a real to a real

power - i.e. 45.6^3.41 using asm and the FPU. Thanks.
