NAME            hypot -- calculate hypotenuse

SYNOPSIS        movf    a,fr0

                movf    b,fr1

                movf    fr0,...

DESCRIPTION     The square root of fr0*fr0 + fr1*fr1 is returned

                in fr0.  The calculation is done in such a way

                that overflow will not occur unless the answer is

                not representable in floating point.
