The library uses the BASIC subroutines, so (among) other things they will not
work for programs exceeding $A000. On the Plus/4 with banking, the situation
is even worse.

But within their limits, these functions are probably the way to have float
support with as less overhead as possible on the C64 (and maybe some other
CBMs). All functions are just small machine code wrappers for the BASIC ROM
