Subject: Re: [OMPI users] LDBL_MANT_DIG declaration trouble
From: Ralph Castain (rhc_at_[hidden])

It should have been defined in <float.h>. Is that include file not found? You might check to ensure it was defined there.

In opal/util/arch.h (about line 260) is the function below. I am getting an error that LDBL_MANT_DIG is not declared. I can not seem to find where it is declared. Any hints would be appreciated. Thanks.
