#311 closed defect (duplicate)

FPU control word is altered at startup

Reported by: komh Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: libc-0.7
Component: libc Version: 0.6.5
Severity: normal Keywords:



It is well known that some dlls alter FPU CW but do not restore it. So if those dlls are imported, FPU CW is altered at startup. This may cause SIGFPE later. To prevent this, it's good to initialize FPU CW at startup.
