- IEEE floating point definitions
This file defines constants, types, and functions used to implement standard floating point according to ANSI/IEEE Std 754-1985. The functions are implemented in libc. The included header file <sys/ieeefp.h> defines certain types of interest to the kernel.
The type of the IEEE rounding direction mode. Note: the order of enumeration varies according to hardware.
The type of the IEEE rounding precision mode, which only applies on systems that support extended precision such as machines based on the Intel 80387 FPU or the 80486. SIGFPE handling:
The type of a SIGFPE code.
The type of a user-definable SIGFPE exception handler called to handle a particular SIGFPE code.
A macro indicating the default SIGFPE exception handling, namely to perform the exception handling specified by the user, if any, and otherwise to dump core using abort(3C).
A macro indicating an alternate SIGFPE exception handling, namely to ignore and continue execution.
A macro indicating an alternate SIGFPE exception handling, namely to abort with a core dump.
The number of distinct IEEE floating-point exceptions.
The type of the N_IEEE_EXCEPTION exceptions. Each exception is given a bit number.
The type intended to hold at least N_IEEE_EXCEPTION bits corresponding to the IEEE exceptions numbered by fp_exception_type. Thus fp_inexact corresponds to the least significant bit and fp_invalid to the fifth least significant bit. Note: some operations may set more than one exception.
Definitions of IEEE formats.
An enumeration of the various classes of IEEE values and symbols.
The length of a decimal_string.
The digit buffer in a decimal_record.
The canonical form for representing an unpacked decimal floating-point number.
The type used to specify fixed or floating binary to decimal conversion.
A struct that contains specifications for conversion between binary and decimal.
An enumeration of possible valid character strings representing floating-point numbers, infinities, or NaNs.
