5.5.7. The VFP coprocessor

The VFP coprocessor, together with associated support code, provides single-precision and double-precision floating-point arithmetic, as defined by ANSI/IEEE Std. 754-1985 IEEE Standard for Binary Floating-Point Arithmetic. This document is referred to as the IEEE 754 standard in this chapter. See Chapter 4 Floating-point Support in the Libraries Guide for more information.

You can use short vectors of up to eight single-precision or four double-precision numbers, but this is deprecated. See VFP vector mode for further information.
