c  ****************** fortran77 subroutine: xxbase ********************
c
c  purpose: to produce a number from representation as a*base^ia
c           protected against underflow and overflow.
c
c  input : (r*8)  a       = mantissa part of number
c  input : (r*8)  ia      = characteristic part of number
c  input : (c*(*))code    = 'zero' => zero a delivered if underflow
c                           'min'  => minimum number delivered
c  output: (r*8)  value   = evaluated number
