# bit ops in generic multiply?
Posted:
Dec 5, 1996 11:01 AM


Any ideas where I could lay my hands on a reasonably generic expression for the number of bit operations in the multiplication of both floating point and integer values to compare with bit shifts and other more fundamental operations? Perhaps clock cycles is a better angle...
I just need something for a theoretical comparison.
Pointers? references?
Thanks, Thomas.
