In a response to my previous entry, Cory asks:
…how would you solve the comparison of two values if one is still on the stack and the other has been [stored in a register]? In other words, what would be the proper way to handle this type of situation (work around, etc.)?
A good question, and one that I should have addressed. You can get the compiler to insert explicit CONV.R8 opcodes by using the CDbl() conversion operator. So the code example would look like:
Dim d1, d2 As Double
d1 = Atn(-1)
d2 = Atn(-1)
If CDbl(d1) = CDbl(d2) Then
If you look at the code this compiles to, you should see CONV.R8 opcodes after each local is loaded, and that should force the values to both be truncated.
