Hi Robert,

First, the python implementation.

python complains that operand >> is not supported on numpy.float32 and
int (which I understand quite well for float32):

      2     """ Converts an IBM floating point number into IEEE format. """
      3
----> 4     sign = ibm >> 31 & 0x01
      5
      6     exponent = ibm >> 24 & 0x7f

TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for >>: 'numpy.float32' and 'int'

What am I doing wrong ?


Cheers,
