Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-226) __rw::__rw_new_capacity() uses floating point math

Martin Sebor commented on STDCXX-226:
-------------------------------------

I'm not 100% sure it can do that. The floating point environment (such as the rounding mode)
during compilation might be different from runtime. Let's check the assembly on a few platforms
first.

> The template __rw_new_capacity() uses floating point arithmetic which may be less efficient
than integer arithmetic on some architectures. Need to change to integer arithmetic and correctly
handle integer overflow.
