From JAVA WORLDS article 'Prepare yourself for what's new and different in the forthcoming JDK 1.2 release'
'Two new keywords were added to JDK 1.2 with the beta 4 release: strictfp and widefp. These keywords let you specify the IEEE 754-standard strictness that a method or class uses when calculating intermediate results. Currently, these options are not used by the JVM, but you can place them in your code. The strictfp keyword acts like the current float behavior, while widefp is an extended-precision format, which may be faster. Here's how to flag a method to use the wide format:
widefp void doCalc (float x, float y) {...}'
