Hello,

I am using Composer XE for Fortran (12.1 and 13) . I am trying to determine if the IEEE extended presicion (**80** bits) and quad precision (**128** bits) formats are supported in versions 12.1 or 13 of the Fortran compiler.

I have been going over the manual but the only relevant information I ran into "Using Efficient Data Types" where it states that "Extended-precision real, expressed explicitly as REAL (KIND=16) or REAL*16"

What is real(kind=16) for Intel Fortran then? Is it what IEEE calls the 128 bit quad precision ? Is extended precision supported as such and how can we declare it ?

Thanks

Michael
