Notes from the BOF on DFP on x86/x86-64 at the GCC Summit


A proposal was made to pick one the Decimal Floating-Point encodings from
the IEEE754r draft in the x86-64 psABI a few weeks ago (see thread starting
at http://www.amd64.org/lists/discuss/thrd215.html#08857).  Given that any
such decision can have multiple developments, many users of x86-64 were
invited to discuss this proposal in the discuss@x86-64.org mailing-list.

Taking the opportunity that many x86-64 users were at the GCC Summit,
including some already taking part in this discussion, we set up a BOF
session to exchange ideas on DFP in x86-64 and even in GCC.

I posted a summary at http://www.amd64.org/lists/discuss/maillist.html
(archive will be updated momentarily).  Please, feel free to correct or
complement my summary.

All are invited to continue this discussion at the discuss@x86-64.org
mailing-list (subscribe at http://www.amd64.org/mailinglists).
