On 32-bit machines, Muq muf supports 27-bit floats: the host 32-bit floating-point format minus five bits off the bottom. (The "missing" five bits are used internally to distinguish float values from, for example, int and character values.) The syntax follows the C standard:
Neither full single precision nor double precision floats are currently supported; it is possible that a future release of Muq will do so.
Note: It is likely that a future release will switch from using C float syntax to using Lisp float syntax, which is similar but not identical. (And, as usual, more complicated.)
