A Fortran solution could be to find a compiler that supports quadruple
precision (16 byte floating point variables) or 10-byte reals. Then you
could either change the code to use quadruple precision or (depending
on the compiler) invoke a compiler switch that automatically promotes
double precision variables to quadruple precision. The Lahey/Fujitsu
compiler has the -quad option. If you want to try this route, the best
newsgroups for follow-up questions would be comp.lang.fortran and/or
sci.math.num-analysis.
