[ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2603?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ] Robert Weir updated OFFICE-2603: --------------------------------- Summary: Add (non-normative ?) reference to IEEE 754 and 854 (was: NEEDS-DISCUSSION Add (non-normative ?) reference to IEEE 754 and 854) Proposal: In section 3.6, remove the second paragraph, "In practice, applications tend....results for a large number of places." In section 4.3.1, remove the first note, "Note: Many evaluators...more than 64 bits)." was: Add the following two informative references: [IEEE 754] 754-1985 IEEE Standard for Binary Floating-Point Arithmetic, IEEE (1985) [IEEE 854] 854-1987 Standard for Radix-Independent Floating-Point Arithmetic, IEEE (1987) [Rob's note: these standards are better known by their numbers rather than their titles, so that is why I'm suggesting the short names as above] In section 3.6, change: "In practice, applications tend to use at least one IEEE 754-1985 binary floating-point" to "In practice, applications tend to use at least one [IEEE 754] binary floating-point" and change: "When IEEE 754 representations are used" to "When [IEEE 754] representations are used" and change: "Applications may use IEEE 854-1987" to "Applications may use [IEEE 854]" Finally, in section 4.3.1, change: "Many evaluators implement numbers as 64-bit IEEE floating point values" to "Many evaluators implement numbers as 64-bit [IEEE 754] floating point values" For reference, this was the old proposal: ------------------------------------ Add the following two informative references: [IEEE 754] 754-1985 IEEE Standard for Binary Floating-Point Arithmetic, IEEE (1985) [IEEE 854] 854-1987 Standard for Radix-Independent Floating-Point Arithmetic, IEEE (1987) [Rob's note: these standards are better known by their numbers rather than their titles, so that is why I'm suggesting the short names as above] In section 3.6, change: "In practice, applications tend to use at least one IEEE 754-1985 binary floating-point" to "In practice, applications tend to use at least one [IEEE 754] binary floating-point" and change: "When IEEE 754 representations are used" to "When [IEEE 754] representations are used" and change: "Applications may use IEEE 854-1987" to "Applications may use [IEEE 854]" Finally, in section 4.3.1, change: "Many evaluators implement numbers as 64-bit IEEE floating point values" to "Many evaluators implement numbers as 64-bit [IEEE 754] floating point values" > Add (non-normative ?) reference to IEEE 754 and 854 > --------------------------------------------------- > > Key: OFFICE-2603 > URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2603 > Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC > Issue Type: Improvement > Components: OpenFormula > Affects Versions: ODF 1.2 Part 2 CD 1 > Reporter: Bart Hanssens > Assignee: Robert Weir > Priority: Minor > Fix For: ODF 1.2 CD 06 > > > 2.6 Numerical methods mentions IEEE 754-1985 and IEEE 854-1987. > Perhaps they should be added as (non normative ?) references in 1.5 -- This message is automatically generated by JIRA. - If you think it was sent incorrectly contact one of the administrators: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/secure/Administrators.jspa - For more information on JIRA, see: http://www.atlassian.com/software/jira
