pragma Pure;

-- (eg s-imgrea).
procedure Reset;
pragma Inline (Reset);
-- Reset the floating-point processor to the default state needed to get
-- correct Ada semantics for the target. Some third party tools change
-- the settings for the floating-point processor. Reset can be called
-- to reset the floating-point processor into the mode required by GNAT
-- for correct operation. Use this call after a call to foreign code if
-- you suspect incorrect floating-point operation after the call.
-- For example under Windows NT some system DLL calls change the default
-- FPU arithmetic to 64 bit precision mode. However, since in Ada 95 it
-- is required to provide full access to the floating-point types of the
-- architecture, GNAT requires full 80-bit precision mode, and Reset makes
-- sure this mode is established.
-- Similarly on the PPC processor, it is important that overflow and
-- underflow exceptions be disabled.
-- The call to Reset simply has no effect if the target environment
-- does not give rise to such concerns.
