Floating-Point Support

Many Microsoft run-time library functions require floating-point support from a math coprocessor or from the floating-point libraries that accompany the compiler. Floating-point support functions are loaded only if required.

When you use a floating-point type specifier in the format string of a call to a function in the printf or scanf family, you must specify a floating-point value or a pointer to a floating-point value in the argument list to tell the compiler that floating-point support is required.

To handle floating-point exceptions, refer to the sample code in the _fpieee_flt topic.

Floating-point precision of intermediate values are controlled by the functions _control87, _controlfp, __control87_2. By default, _controlfp's precision control is set to 53 bits (_PC_53). Linking with FP10.OBJ changes the default precision control to 64 bits (_PC_64). On the linker command line, FP10.OBJ must appear before LIBC.LIB, LIBCMT.LIB, or MSVCRT.LIB.
