[Numpy-discussion] float128 in fact float80
Sat Oct 15 18:29:39 CDT 2011
After getting rather confused, I concluded that float128 on a couple
of Intel systems I have, is in fact an 80 bit extended precision
That is rather confusing. What is the rationale for calling this
float128? It is not IEEE 754 float128, and yet it seems to claim so.
