Understanding the IEEE Standard for Floating-Point Arithmetic, IEEE 754-2008

This version of the compiler uses a close approximation to the IEEE Standard for Floating-Point Arithmetic, version IEEE 754-2008, unless otherwise stated. This standard is common to many microcomputer-based systems due to the availability of fast processors that implement the required characteristics.
This section outlines the characteristics of the IEEE 754-2008 standard and its implementation in the compiler. Except as noted, the description refers to both the IEEE 754-2008 standard and the compiler implementation.
