    implied 's ?

    Hi.
    "Computers that don't have hardware for floating-point computations have a set of subroutines to help the user program scientific problems with floating-point numbers."
    (Computer systems architechturemano 1993, p84)

    Shouldn't it be:
    "...the user program's scientific problems with floating-point numbers."?

    Else, What kind of a structure is it?

    I think it means "to help the user (the person using the computer) to program (infinitive) scientific problems (two-word noun).
