I *think* what you are saying is that there will be no float16 type, but the result of struct.unpack('eorwhatever', packed_stuff)[0] will be the same as struct.unpack('f', packed_stuff)[0], yes? If so, that's what I wanted. I don't want a new float16; I want the output of unpacking a half-precision to be the same as unpacking the other two.

I didn't see a statement like that earlier in the thread, but I could have missed it. Or maybe this was covered in msg132976?
