NAME            atof -- ascii to floating

SYNOPSIS        jsr     r5,atof; subr

DESCRIPTION     atof will convert an ascii stream to a floating

                number returned in fr0.  The subroutine subr is

                called on r5 for each character of the ascii

                stream.  subr should return the character in r0.

                The first character not used in the conversion is

                left in r0.  The floating point simulation should

                be active in either floating or double mode, but

                in single precision integer mode.
