Compiler support for intervals as intrinsic data types is essential for promoting the development and wide-spread use of interval software. It also plays an important role in encouraging the development of hardware support for interval arithmetic. This paper describes modi cations made to the GNU Fortran Compiler to provide support for interval arithmetic. These modi cations are based on a recently proposed Fortran 77 Interval Arithmetic Speci cation, which provides a standard for supporting… CONTINUE READING
