Please could you elaborate on which definition conflicts with it?
This is so that I can clarify or ask the C++ committee to clarify
the contentious point.
As far as I can tell, std::numeric_limits<> was designed so that
C++ implementations can choose to comply to LIA-1, IEEE-754 and/or tell
when they support SNaNs -- the numeric_limits<> view is biased toward
LIA-1, but it clearly makes room for SNaNs.
