These number representations are used for CDC 6000 and 7000 series computers.

Floating point numbers are represented by one bit for the sign (S), 11
bits for the exponent, and 48 bits for the fraction. The exponent
is to the base 2, and has a bias of 975_{10} (!). Negative
numbers are in one's complement.

__DOUBLE PRECISION__ ?

__INTEGER__ numbers are 60 bits long (with a range of
-574,460,752,303,423,440 to +574,460,752,303,423,440 [!]), and are in one's
complement.
