Summary0037486: Language Reference Guide should mention availability of floating point types
DescriptionCurrently the Language Reference Guide ( https://freepascal.org/docs-html/current/ref/refsu5.html#x27-300003.1.2 ) does not mention that not all floating types (especially Extended) are available on all platforms. This is mentioned in the Programmer's Guide ( https://freepascal.org/docs-html/current/prog/progsu159.html#x203-2110008.2.5 ), but not everyone is going to look there. Also it's not mentioned that Extended is not available on Win64 (by default).

Sidenote: a Comp type is available on all platforms, however on any except x86 (excluding Win64 again) it's handled as an Int64 instead of by the FPU.
