Used by the routines at TWO_PARAM, FIND_INT1, STK_TO_A, CD_PRMS1, DEC_TO_FP, PRINT_FP, chrs and exp.
The routine at LOG_2_A continues here.
This short but vital subroutine is called at least 8 times for various purposes. It uses FP_TO_BC to get the 'last value' into the A register where this is possible. It therefore tests whether the modulus of the number rounds to more than 255 and if it does the subroutine returns with the carry flag set. Otherwise it returns with the modulus of the number, rounded to the nearest integer, in the A register, and the zero flag set to imply that the number was positive, or reset to imply that it was negative.


FP_TO_A  2DD5  CALL FP_TO_BC  Compress the 'last value' into BC.  
2DD8  RET C  Return if out of range already.  
2DD9  PUSH AF  Save the result and the flags.  
2DDA  DEC B  Again it will be out of range if the B register does not hold zero.  
2DDB  INC B  
2DDC  JR Z,FP_A_END  Jump if in range.  
2DDE  POP AF  Fetch the result and the flags.  
2DDF  SCF  Signal the result is out of range.  
2DE0  RET  Finished  unsuccessful.  
FP_A_END  2DE1  POP AF  Fetch the result and the flags.  
2DE2  RET  Finished  successful.
