Today’s processors are two to four thousand times their 1MHz speed in 1980, and have data paths eight times their former size. On the road to greater speed, vendors seem to have always rushed in with more sophisticated features to use up those increasingly faster computer cycles. Taking up some of that power are formatting features that… Expand
