Its a way of representing a noninteger number in a 32bit word. The first 26 bits are used to represent the integer portion of the number so the integer can vary from 0 to 67,108,864. The remaining 6 are used to represent the fractional portion.
Do a Google for fixed precision arithmetic or see Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fixedpoint_arithmetic You *are* a software developer, right ?
