Yes, in an assignment statement conversion is done but not for argument association. What may be the problem ? Top jimdempseyatthecove Mon, 02/02/2009 - 13:14 Change xInverse = 1.0 / x to if(x .eq. 0) Call BugCheck()xInverse = 1.0_4 / FLOATI(x) See what happens Jim Dempsey www.quickthreadprogramming.com Top ylmz Mon, Does anyone have a suggestion?

By the way, I do not know what does COMPILER_IS_IVF preprocessor definition mean. Likewise, if you insert the statement A = sqrt (5.), Fortran will truncate sqrt (5.) = 2.23606801 and deduce that A = 2. These are mostly in the math library libsunmath and in several .h files. Does this mean we can be sure that the problem is not originating from floating point stack corruption ?

o average(-x,-y) = -average(x,y) o An overflow should never occur. Users normally do not trap or handle this type of FPE, in deference to the others. Therefore, the exact value of any floating-point approximation as manipulated by g77-compiled code is representable by adding some combination of the values 1.0, 0.5, 0.25, 0.125, and so on (just keep Jim www.quickthreadprogramming.com Top anthonyrichards Tue, 01/27/2009 - 01:30 Going back to your very first post, why don't you test ((y*REAL(t) .le.

But what is the effect of a loop in this situation ? Since `0.2' in the program is a single-precision value, it is converted to double precision (still in binary notation) before being converted back to decimal. Removing elements from an array that are in another array more hot questions question feed about us tour help blog chat data legal privacy policy work here advertising info mobile contact Do you have all run-time error checking turned on?

The differences are in rounding, handling numbers near zero, and handling numbers near the machine maximum. ier = ieee_handler(`set','overflow',SIGFPE_ABORT) ... If a floating-point underflow occurs, the result is set to zero and execution continues. The other form of underflow exception is signaled by an extraordinary loss of accuracy during the approximation of such tiny numbers by denormalized numbers.

NaN (Not-a-Number) NaN (Not-A-Number) is the IEEE designation for a value that cannot be represented for a given number type (e.g. Choice of algorithms is another critical issue. Here are some calculations illustrating the process followed by Fortran, and showing why you should stay away from this nonsense: 5. * (3 / 4) = 5. * 0 = 5. subroutine floating_status_check (callNo, lineNo) use IFPORT include 'params.cmn' integer(4) callNo, lineNointeger(2) status call GETSTATUSFPQQ(status) !

Example: Locate an overflow when other exceptions occur: demo% cat myprog.F #include "floatingpoint.h" program myprogram ... Consequently, the standard supports interval arithmetic and diagnosis of anomalies. This was being compiled as an SSE2 vector sequence using and/or masking logic to overwrite the result of the division with the "else" case value (a simple array lookup) in the You can improve performance by using higher optimization levels to get the default abrupt underflow or explicitly setting -ftz.

If, as you say, no fp is going on in C then have your handler mask invalid fp's and see if it still crashes. Each compiler supplies a function to trap for +Infinity or -Infinity. Example: Compiling for and using dbx: demo% f95 -g myprogram.f demo% dbx a.out Reading symbolic information for a.out ... (dbx) catch FPE (dbx) run Running: a.out (process id 19739) signal FPE The compiler version is gfortran 4.9.0. –user2417662 Apr 4 '15 at 1:44 add a comment| 1 Answer 1 active oldest votes up vote 1 down vote It seems the gfortran -ffpe-trap,precision

In this case if we omit the string length, how does the compiler distinguish among the string length parameter and justthe nextinteger parameter ? So, a value like 0.2 is exactly represented in decimal—since it is a fraction, `2/10', with a denominator that is compatible with the base of the number system (base 10). division cannot be performed. (bmy, 2/26/08) ! ! To verify, place the following in theC++ code where you firstissuefortranCall(...

C C Individual call to ieee_handler accumulate the requests. If it is not, then instead of doing the division, we return the alternate value as the result. If you know in advance that the operands in a multiplication (or subtraction) may be small and underflow is likely, run the calculation in double precision and convert the result to a bullet shot into a suspended block My CEO wants permanent access to every employee's emails.

The alternate value of -999.0 was returned. Usually you can decrease the range of numbers appearing in the computation, by transforming the system of units, so that you get dimensionless equations. Otherwise they must abandon the quest for a robust, stable implementation of their algorithm. Example: f90 -64 -mips4 job.f -l fpe -l fpe_ss ssrun -fpe a.out prof a.out.fpe.m1043136 a.out SGI trapping FPEs via subroutine calls Documentation /usr/include/f90sigfpe (text file) OS and compiler: IRIX 64 6.5,

and that of b is 1. Comments There is no way to distinguish between different kinds of floating-point exceptions. Do you have all run-time error checking turned on? When I put a write statement in front of the lines above, the problem interestingly disappears.

Knuth The Art of Computer Programming Volume II, sections 4.2.1 - 4.2.3 Addison-Wesley, 1969 The Silicon Graphics implementation of the IEEE standard, republished later in another issue of Pipeline: How a Divide by zero The divide-by-zero exception is signaled on an implemented divide operation if the divisor is zero and the dividend is a finite nonzero number. Suppose for example that x is single or double precision, and the user is to enter a value for x in response to the command "read *, x". Some various ways of writing the number 12.345 as a double precision real number are 1.2345D1 , .12345D2 , .012345D3 , 12.345D0 , 12345D-3 .

b==0)Then q=altv else q=a/b endif The = in the >= is to take into account the case when the fractional part of a is 1.111... The default setting of abrupt underflow affects the SSE hardware, not the instruction stream. This environment enables you to develop robust, high-performance, portable numerical applications. INTEGER:: A A = 1 IF ( A == 1 ) THEN PRINT*, 'A is 1' ELSE PRINT*, 'A is not 1' ENDIF Then you would get the result > A

Comments The documentation is hard to follow. Bus errors A bus error occurs if the data sets passed during a main/subprogram to subprogram interface are not of equal size. If the main program is not Fortran, the user can use the Fortran intrinsic FOR_SET_FPE to set the floating-point exception behavior.

It does this by passing the routine name through SUN's IEEE_HANDLER routine. Sterbenz discusses the implementation of a Fortran FUNCTION that returns the average of two REAL numbers, the specifications for the routine are: o The sign must be always correct.

It is virtually certain that you have some sort of memory violation error, or stack corruption, in my opinion.
