Well, FWIW, https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=1%20%2F%207%20%3D%200.142857142857143%20%3D%200x6FDF1234 seems to poop it out just fine

I figure it is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single-precision_floating-point_format but I can't get it correct

I can get https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single-precision_floating-point_format#Single-precision_examples on my machine (3eaa aaab ≈ 1/3) with

$ perl -le " print unpack 'H*', pack 'f>', 1/3 3eaaaaab
but basically I tired brute forced it :)

I also saw these and they might have something to do with it, but the bits got me :) Network IEEE 754 to Native Floats: which pack/unpack ops better?, Extracting IEEE 754 floating point numbers
