/* A self-contained host- and target-independent arbitrary-precision
floating-point software implementation. It uses bignum integer
arithmetic as provided by static functions in the APInt class.
The library will work with bignum integers whose parts are any
unsigned type at least 16 bits wide, but 64 bits is recommended.
Written for clarity rather than speed, in particular with a view
to use in the front-end of a cross compiler so that target
arithmetic can be correctly performed on the host. Performance
should nonetheless be reasonable, particularly for its intended
use. It may be useful as a base implementation for a run-time
library during development of a faster target-specific one.
All 5 rounding modes in the IEEE-754R draft are handled correctly
for all implemented operations. Currently implemented operations
are add, subtract, multiply, divide, fused-multiply-add,
conversion-to-float, conversion-to-integer and
conversion-from-integer. New rounding modes (e.g. away from zero)
can be added with three or four lines of code.
Four formats are built-in: IEEE single precision, double
precision, quadruple precision, and x87 80-bit extended double
(when operating with full extended precision). Adding a new
format that obeys IEEE semantics only requires adding two lines of
code: a declaration and definition of the format.
All operations return the status of that operation as an exception
bit-mask, so multiple operations can be done consecutively with
their results or-ed together. The returned status can be useful
for compiler diagnostics; e.g., inexact, underflow and overflow
can be easily diagnosed on constant folding, and compiler
optimizers can determine what exceptions would be raised by
folding operations and optimize, or perhaps not optimize,
At present, underflow tininess is detected after rounding; it
should be straight forward to add support for the before-rounding
case too.
The library reads hexadecimal floating point numbers as per C99,
and correctly rounds if necessary according to the specified
rounding mode. Syntax is required to have been validated by the
caller. It also converts floating point numbers to hexadecimal
text as per the C99 %a and %A conversions. The output precision
(or alternatively the natural minimal precision) can be specified;
if the requested precision is less than the natural precision the
output is correctly rounded for the specified rounding mode.
It also reads decimal floating point numbers and correctly rounds
according to the specified rounding mode.
Conversion to decimal text is not currently implemented.
Non-zero finite numbers are represented internally as a sign bit,
a 16-bit signed exponent, and the significand as an array of
integer parts. After normalization of a number of precision P the
exponent is within the range of the format, and if the number is
not denormal the P-th bit of the significand is set as an explicit
integer bit. For denormals the most significant bit is shifted
right so that the exponent is maintained at the format's minimum,
so that the smallest denormal has just the least significant bit
of the significand set. The sign of zeroes and infinities is
significant; the exponent and significand of such numbers is not
stored, but has a known implicit (deterministic) value: 0 for the
significands, 0 for zero exponent, all 1 bits for infinity
exponent. For NaNs the sign and significand are deterministic,
although not really meaningful, and preserved in non-conversion
operations. The exponent is implicitly all 1 bits.
Some features that may or may not be worth adding:
Binary to decimal conversion (hard).
Optional ability to detect underflow tininess before rounding.
New formats: x87 in single and double precision mode (IEEE apart
from extended exponent range) (hard).
New operations: sqrt, IEEE remainder, C90 fmod, nextafter,
