IEEE 754-2008 Binary Floating-Point Conformance Library

The Intel® IEEE 754-2008 Binary Floating-Point Conformance Library provides all operations mandated by the IEEE 754-2008 standard for binary32 and binary64 binary floating-point interchange formats.
Many routines in the
libbfp754
Library are more optimized for Intel® microprocessors than for non-Intel microprocessors.
Optimization Notice
Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
