Fixed point multiplication

Recommended Posts

I want to use 2 types of fixed point variables a) 32b.32b b) 0b.64b I want to represent them using signed __int64; Is there a fast way to multiply a * a or b * b without losing any accuracy? Like:
__int64 aprod = __int64(( __int128(ax) * __int128(ax) ) >> 64);
__int64 bprod = __int64(( __int128(bx) * __int128(by) ) >> 32);
//where aprod, ax and ay are 32b.32b

//where bprod, bx and by are 0b.64b

Which would work perfectly if only __int128 existed. (ps, whatever happed to extended 80-bit floats) Any ideas? (I'm currently using an inline function) [/source] [edited by - Krylloan on August 11, 2002 3:13:03 PM] [edited by - Krylloan on August 11, 2002 3:13:38 PM]
