Yeah, I wrote special code in the Java compiler to do the Right Thing.


/* Convert an IEEE real to an integer type.  The result of such a
   conversion when the source operand is a NaN isn't defined by
   IEEE754, but by the Java language standard: it must be zero.  Also,
   overflows must be clipped to within range.  This conversion
   produces something like:

      ((expr >= (float)MAX_INT)
       ? MAX_INT 
       : ((expr <= (float)MIN_INT)
	  ? MIN_INT
	  : ((expr != expr)
	     ? 0 
	     : (int)expr))) */

in java/typeck.c.
