From n1256:

6.10.6 Pragma directive
Semantics

1 A preprocessing directive of the form

# pragma pp-tokensopt new-line

where the preprocessing token STDC does not immediately follow pragma in
the directive (prior to any macro replacement)152) causes the
implementation to behave in an implementation-defined manner. The
behavior might cause translation to fail or cause the
translator or the resulting program to behave in a non-conforming
manner. Any such pragma that is not recognized by the implementation is
ignored.

2 If the preprocessing token STDC does immediately follow pragma in the
directive (prior to any macro replacement), then no macro replacement
is performed on the directive, and the directive shall have one of the
following forms153) whose meanings are described elsewhere:

#pragma STDC FP_CONTRACT on-off-switch
#pragma STDC FENV_ACCESS on-off-switch
#pragma STDC CX_LIMITED_RANGE on-off-switch

on-off-switch: one of
ON OFF DEFAULT

some are:
-control over the "section" into which the compiler places the code and/or
data
-control over the "addressing mode" used for accessing the data
-control over floating point
-control over enabling/disabling of certain optimizations etc
