manexp is defined in domain DFLOAT (sf.spad.pamphlet)

  manexp:% -> Record(MANTISSA:Integer,EXPONENT:Integer)

except for some special cases it is given in terms of


which is unfortunately apparently not to be found in
the common lisp specs?

Hence Juergen's definition

  (defun manexp (u)
  (multiple-value-bind (f e s) (decode-float u)
                       (list (* s f) e)))

But where should it go? And why doesn't the Axiom
build complain about it's absence?
