Intermediate results may fall out of the compiler range capabilities, or introduce lost of precision in generated constant (e.g. Win64->Win32 cross-compiler is able to do only double-precision calculations, however the resulting program is fully float80-capable). (Hopefully compiling will just fail with over/underflow, but I cannot check this right now). In any case, I see no other but softfloat solution, as Florian already mention, and this would be a big performance impact, I suspect.. :( -- Best regards, Max mailto:stein_nos...@mail.ru _______________________________________________ fpc-devel maillist - firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.freepascal.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/fpc-devel
