This paper introduces a precision and range independent tool for testing the compliance of hardware or software implementations of (multiprecision) floatingpoint arithmetic with the principles of the IEEE standards 754 and 854. The tool consists of a driver program, o#ering many options to test only specific aspects of the IEEE standards, and a large set of test vectors, encoded in a precision independent syntax to allow the testing of basic and extended hardware formats as well as multiprecision floatingpoint implementations.
