It's maybe a bit off-topic, but if you can direct me to a right newsgroup I
would be pleased.

We are planning to use the PPC440 but,
I wan't to use floating point calculations on a PPC440,
since this processor has no FPU, it not as easy I guess?

- What do I need to do floating point calculations?
- Does the GNU compiler support this feature?
- Can I find documentation upon the power (CPU Cycles) needed to do a single
'add' or 'multiply'?

Thx Roel
