I was looking in Mathematicas documentation and could not find to which point Mathematica includes the IEEE 754 standard?
It is mention it in its documentation MachinePrecision under Background & Context:
floating-point computation and is most commonly implemented using the IEEE Standard for Floating-Point Arithmetic (IEEE 754) standard
and has an entry in Mathworld IEEE 754-2008:
As of 2014, the IEEE 754-2008 is the most commonly implemented standard for floating-point arithmetic. This framework is a massive overhaul of its predecessor IEEE 754-1985 and includes a built-in collection of guidelines specifying nearly every conceivable aspect of floating-point theory.
Of course Mathematica is aware of the standard, but I could not find a single passage where they explicitly mentioned the implementation of the IEEE 754?
P.S. I am using Mathematica for the unit testing of a C++ program and feel want to be sure I can reproduce the same results within both programs.
