Re: What is acceptable for -ffast-math? (Was: associative law in combine)

  To contribute, or not to contribute, that is the question
  Whether it is better in the long run
  To continue to post messages to this thread
  Which goeth round in circles, further and further off-topic.
  Or to stop posting to it
  And allow silly arguments to go unchallenged
  Or on the other hand to stop reading it altogether
  And by ignoring it, end it.

(apologies to Andrew Rilstone)

I'm just sort of wondering if there's going to be a patch posted here or on
gcc-patches, something in the way of a concrete suggestion.  Thus far there's
been some name calling, lots of heat, very little light.  Maybe someone
would care to summarize the topic (e.g., are we restricting the discussion
to a particular platform, what exactly is the source of disagreement, etc)?

If I recall my flamewar protocol correctly, the next step is ad hominem
attacks.  Those are always entertaining.

...I wrote "exactly" in a FP thread... that was a mistake...

Would I had phrases that are not known, utterances that are strange, in
new language that has not been used, free from repetition, not an utterance
which has grown stale, which men of old have spoken.
