Enable quadruple precision (_Quad)

Enable quadruple precision (_Quad)

I am trying to use the quadruple precision type _Quad in my program but I get an undefined symbol error. I've added -Qoption,cpp,--extended_float_type to my compiler options in visual studio, is there anything else I need to do to get this to work?

Thanks.

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Could you please provide the error message text? It would be nice if you can help with small reproducer.

Error 209 error : identifier "_Quad" is undefined

I've only added the compiler switch to the additional options under the configuration properties for the project and tried to declare a variable of type _Quad.

Could you please use compiler option -Qoption,cpp,--extended_float_type to enable _Quad type. This option is only Intel Compiler specific?
