Using the Intel® IEEE 754-2008 Binary Floating-Point Conformance Library

Many routines in the libbfp754 Library are more optimized for Intel® microprocessors than for non-Intel microprocessors.

To use the library, include the header file, bfp754.h, in your program.

Here is an example program illustrating the use of the library on Linux* OS.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <bfp754.h>
int main(){
  double a64, b64;
  float c32;
  a64 = 1.000000059604644775390625;
  b64 = 1.1102230246251565404236316680908203125e-16;
  c32 = __binary32_add_binary64_binary64(a64, b64);
  printf("The addition result using the libary: %8.8f\n", c32);
  c32 = a64 + b64;
  printf("The addition result without the libary: %8.8f\n", c32);
  return 0;

The command for compiling binary.c is:

icc -fp-model source -fp-model except binary.c –lbfp754

The output of a.out will look similar to the following:

The addition result using the libary: 1.00000012
The addition result without the libary: 1.00000000
