fplib arithmetic on numbers in a particular format
3.2.2 fplib arithmetic on numbers in a particular format
fplib provides a number of routines to perform arithmetic on numbers in a particular format.
The following table describes these routines. Arguments and return types are always in the same format.
Table 3-1 Arithmetic routines
Functions that perform the IEEE 754 round-to-integer operation. This takes a number and rounds it to an integer (in accordance with the current rounding mode), but returns that integer in the floating-point number format rather than as a C
