I am currently studying assembly, in hopes of one day forging a game of my own design from raw machine code.
In this particular vein... I have stumbled upon a problem, that of Square Roots, and the methods of calculating them.
It is my understanding that the only methods known to calculate a square root are based on the iterative-guesswork approach.
How helpful would a single iteration equation to calculate a square root be?
