With reference to the above mentioned paper (see ibid., vol.C-35, p.896-901 (1986)), it is stated that the authors' introduction, in which they claim that the references all deal with algorithms for processing unsigned operands, is erroneous. One of their references most certainly does not deal with unsigned operands, as a two's complement number system is one of the module interfacing conventions germane to R. Lyon's (1981) methodology. Moreover, in the authors' conclusions they state that they 'have now extended bit-sequential multiplication to signed, two's complement binary operands', which may give the (doubtless unintended) impression that this has not been done before.<>
