Re: VAX float to IEEE float, Help!

Dear Dr. Prasad,
 The basic code to convert between binary number formats is located
in 'prime/dio/libsrc/cvb.c' under the MIDAS release.  It contains
code for HP, VAX and IEEE floating point formats.  It is somewhat
complex as it should take care of all cases and is depending on a
special MIDAS include file which is generated during the installation
and shows the architecture of the local system.

Although the code is there, it may be simpler to find a VAX and
convert the data to FITS on it (ref. comment by Jean-Pierre De Cuyper).

Best of luck
