2FBA: THE 'FETCH TWO NUMBERS' SUBROUTINE
Used by the routines at PRINT_FP, addition, multiply and division.
This subroutine is called by addition, multiply and division to get two numbers from the calculator stack and put them into the registers, including the exchange registers.
On entry to the subroutine the HL register pair points to the first byte of the first number (M) and the DE register pair points to the first byte of the second number (N).
When the subroutine is called from multiply or division the sign of the result is saved in the second byte of the first number.
Input
A Bit 7 holds the sign bit of the result (when called from multiply or division)
DE Address of the first byte of N
HL Address of the first byte of M
Output
H'B'C'CB The five bytes of M
L'D'E'DE The five bytes of N
FETCH_TWO 2FBA PUSH HL HL is preserved.
2FBB PUSH AF AF is preserved.
Call the five bytes of the first number M1, M2, M3, M4 and M5, and the five bytes of the second number N1, N2, N3, N4 and N5.

Summary:
• M1 - M5 are in H', B', C', C, B.
• N1 - N5 are in L', D', E', D, E.
• HL points to the first byte of the first number.
