I have read the paper "Goldberg, David. "What every computer scientist
should know about floating-point arithmetic." ACM Computing Surveys (CSUR)
23.1 (1991): 5-48."and documentation and now having a little understanding
of what this project is about.Presently going through the code and
concepts, please guide me of what changes I have to do in the previous code
to make it better.
