Rounding modes.

 Rounding modes.

Is there any High Level Language which allows one to select the different
rounding modes as provided by the IEEE 754 floating point standard?

Thanks.

Napi
[Many C implementations have library functions to set the mode dynamically,
e.g. fpsetround() in System V. -John]

All the various members of the PL/M-x86 family allowed direct access to the
floating point modes of the IEEE compliant FPUs via a built-in variable.
