There has recently been some discussion on improving portability of programs using floating-point.
Drawing on the benefits from definition of typedefs for int32_t, int64_t, int128_t . we have drawn
up a proposal to add similar typedefs for floating-point.
Our draft document (in both html and pdf) is at
We hope to propose this to the SG6 Numerics subgroup of WG21 ISO C++ standards body.
But would welcome comments from Boosters to help us improve this proposal.
Thank you.
