Any compiler supports 16 bytes float on IA-32?

    On IA-32, 16 bytes float has supported in Fortran. Is there any C++ compiler
    supports 16 bytes float?

    The lcc-win32 compiler supports 80 bits floats (long double type)
    The size of those floats is 12, not 16.

    Another, more precise floating type is the qfloat type with 100
    significant digits, but the size is 350 bits...
