I haven't checked this but it does not solve the problem. The
floating point format of the host should not really be used for
Mike wnat to develop on Windows and targets ARM Cortex. The real
data type is therefore the standard 64bit IEEE type. But LDC will
use the x86 80bit type because it runs on Windows.
Same is true with PPC/PPC64. This architecture have a 128bit
"double double" type. But running LDC on Windows, it is not
possible to produce PPC/PPC64 code with the "double double".
IMHO this really needs to be fixed.
