Re: New GCC releases comparison and comparison of GCC4.4 and LLVM2.5 on SPEC2000

Sorry, I missed to mention that I used an additional option -mpc64

32-bit comparison of SPECFP2000 should be taken with a grain of salt.
what does -mpc64 do exactly? The gcc docs say:
`-mpc64' rounds the the significands of results of floating-point
operations to 53 bits (double precision)
Does this mean that a rounding operation is performed after each fp
operation, or that optimizations are permitted that don't result in
accurate extended double precision values as long as they are correct
to 53 bits, or something else?
The LLVM code generators have an option called -limit-float-precision:
-limit-float-precision=<uint> - Generate low-precision inline
sequences for some float libcalls
I'm not sure what it does exactly, but perhaps it is similar to -
No, that inline a small set of libcalls into sequences code that
implement low precision math (6, 8, 12 bits).
