Which 32-bit CUPs currently in wide use support IEEE 754?
Which of those are listed in http://predef.sourceforge.net/prearch.html ?
Shouldn't you be asking about which CPUs do *not* support IEEE 754?
Alpha. Appendix B of the Alpha Architecture Handbook describes it
as a "subset". IIRC, it drops full conformance in favour of
performance. Something about not stopping for errors... unsure how
it may affect Lua numbers, though, but all the details can be
found in the aforementioned appendix B.
