I've added a 16-bit square root routine (again for the 17c43) that uses successive approximation to find the square root, the binary restoring method I'm fairly sure would be quicker. This is the only 16-bit sqrt routine I have specifically for the 17cxx PICs, I've only included it as the original poster requested a 16-bit routine. If you really want speed speed speed, I'd rewrite the 32-bit routine to be 16-bit.Standard disclaimer applies
