For 53 bits double, to make same math result across platform,

I suspect the result of that will not be truly cross-platform. Most platforms will fail to compile that [1], but I guess there is one that you happen to use (which one is it?) where that works. To make this truly cross-platform, you should rather say in its stead: #error I cannot set floating-point precision in a cross-platform way [2]


you are right.

fesetround work c99 or higher (I use gcc 4.7.1)

I wanted float math result to be platform independent,
but the patch itself (fesetround) is not platform independent.

Looking at python pyport.h, it is complicated.

Luckily, Python provided binaries to download.
