Congratulations on a helpful answer.
Thanks for the compliment. Despite my knowing much less about GCC than
the experts who usually answer here, I think I sometimes have a better
insight into what is confusing the OP. Then I try to provide a helpful
answer. I think I did that this time.
But I have to disagree with you there. The GCC gurus typically
answering in this mailing list, including in this thread, do a great
job. I'm very impressed with the accuracy and helpfulness of answers in
this mailing list. I usually learn something.
Yours was the first one that did
not display the almost conventional GCC guru arrogance.
I didn't initially answer your post, because I didn't want to dilute the
discussion about precision with a lot of meta discussion about GCC
gurus. But now that it is already diluted by other replies, I didn't
want to leave the impression that I agree with you about that
"arrogance" of the GCC gurus.
