   Simply put, I compile this:
     int i;
     for (i=0; i<20; i++)
       printf("%g \n", drand48());
   run it, get several numbers near to 0 (Ex: 8.32456E-315) then get:
   Floating exception - core dumped
   This is on Bell Tech SV3.2u with the BT S/W Dev Platform.   What the hell
   am I doing wrong, and how do I fix it. Please mail answers directly to me.
   Thanks in advance. -- SMY

Its generic C thing.  Add there statement telling:
  double drand48();
Now it should work.  Default value function return value is int as you
well know...
