I forgot to add something... from the compiler man page:

Support all portable features of the IEEE Standard for Binary
Floating-Point Arithmetic (ANSI/IEEE Standard 754-1985), including the
treatment of denormalized numbers, NaNs, infinities, and the handling
of error cases. This flag also sets the _IEEE_FP macro. To flush
floating point underflows to zero, add the -underflow_to_zero option.

When used with the -ieee option, directs the compiler to flush float-
ing point underflows to zero.
