Ceil double problem

  1. Yes, I know, it is just a clarification of what the standard itself
    already does state.
    The standard does not disallow them, as long as the arithmetic can be
    modelled with an integer base. You may note that the radix given
    is not necessarily the actual radix of the base arithmetic, nor is
    it necessary that the base arithmetic is floating-point. The only
    requirement is that it can be modelled as if it follows such a model,
    and indeed, nearly every arithmetic can be modelled as such.
    That is all irrelevant as the standard allows all operations to be
    as inexact as you wish, the only requirement is about the round-trip
    conversion.
