Fully support basic floating point operations in spshell. #195

@dvander dvander commented Apr 13, 2018

Currently, floating point functions in SourcePawn are optimized by hardcoding the native names SourceMod uses. The hack is not very rigorous. Nevertheless, it exists, and it's why spshell is able to use float ops despite not having the natives.

Let's finally promote at least some of the floating point library to builtin status. We'll probably see more of this in the future (since it's a nice way to prototype new opcodes too), so this patch introduces a "builtins" mechanism. The actual way things get bound is still tied to float native replacement.

Note that when using the new <core/float> include, the native names are different from SourceMod (__float_sub instead of FloatSub, for example). This again is in anticipation of having other special builtins for underlying features. SourceMod won't be upgraded to the new names - there's no particular reason to, and it would cause some minor disruption.
