Description Søren Sandmann Pedersen 2012-12-14 23:46:59 UTC
Created attachment 28972 [details]
The reproducer program

The attached program generates a divide-by-zero on i686 when compiled with -O2.
The divide-by-zero comes from this fragment:

	if (t == 0.0f)
	    b = sa * da;
	    b = sa * sa * d / (t);

which as far as I know should be a legitimate way to ensure division by zero doesn't happen. In particular, the t value generated is a negative zero, which should compare equal to 0.0f unless I'm misunderstanding something.

I have reproduced the bug with 4.7.0 and 4.7.2 running in 32 bit mode, and with 4.7.2 with -m32 on x86-64.

On x86-64:

localhost:~% gcc -m32 -W -Wextra -Wall -g -O2 gccfloat.c -lm
localhost:~% ./a.out 
Floating exception

localhost:~% gcc -v
Using built-in specs.

Comment 1 Andrew Pinski 2012-12-14 23:56:51 UTC
I bet this is a dup of bug 323.
Comment 2 Andrew Pinski 2012-12-14 23:59:37 UTC
In fact using -std=c99 or -ffloat-store it works correctly.
Comment 3 Søren Sandmann Pedersen 2012-12-15 02:09:20 UTC
Yeah, I guess it is. I had forgotten about this issue.
