IIRC this thread tells you what to do. Write your own big number routine
and use Newton's method. There is nothing there that precludes the use of

As I said a few hours ago, the following Numerical Recipes code gives you

You are correct, sir! But there was an earlier thread titled <sqrt
precision?!> from a guy named Marcin and this one was also by Marcin and
dealt with a vaguely similar subject. And, IIRC, the earlier thread told
him what to do. I encapsulated what I thought the best advise was in my
full post.

Put the blame where it belongs - on the ridiculous brain dead

selling their stock short - they seem to have suddenly lost their
technical capability and even the ability to correct that.
