fpaux module

This external module contains the words from the now obsolete file ieeefp-ext.c, which implemented IEEE-754 default exception handling, rounding modes, and alternate exception handling. The words that implemented extra IEEE-754 and C99 floating-point functions have been absorbed into the dnw branch of pfe in the file floating-ext.c, with quad floating point versions in qfloating-ext.c.

The fpaux module does not contain any words that operate on the floating-point stack. It works with both the floating and the qfloating modules, whether loaded individually or together.
