IIRC, "comp" was a long integer type (64 bits? 96 bits?) that was actually 
implemented using floating-point math. (No, I have no idea what "comp" 

It's the only compiler I'm aware of that had such a reserved word.

I think that compiler also had "extended" as a reserved word (as a 96-bit 
floating point type, to match Motorola hardware of the time).
