About stdlib...

We believe in a future in which the web is a preferred environment for numerical computation. To help realize this future, we've built stdlib. stdlib is a standard library, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computation, written in JavaScript (and C) for execution in browsers and in Node.js.

The library is fully decomposable, being architected in such a way that you can swap out and mix and match APIs and functionality to cater to your exact preferences and use cases.

When you use stdlib, you can be absolutely certain that you are using the most thorough, rigorous, well-written, studied, documented, tested, measured, and high-quality code out there.

To join us in bringing numerical computing to the web, get started by checking us out on GitHub, and please consider financially supporting stdlib. We greatly appreciate your continued support!

FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_EXPONENT_MASK

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

High word mask for the exponent of a double-precision floating-point number.

Installation

npm install @stdlib/constants-float64-high-word-exponent-mask

Usage

var FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_EXPONENT_MASK = require( '@stdlib/constants-float64-high-word-exponent-mask' );

FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_EXPONENT_MASK

High word mask for the exponent of a double-precision floating-point number.

// 0x7ff00000 = 2146435072 => 0 11111111111 00000000000000000000
var bool = ( FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_EXPONENT_MASK === 0x7ff00000 );
// returns true

Notes

Examples

var getHighWord = require( '@stdlib/number-float64-base-get-high-word' );
var FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_EXPONENT_MASK = require( '@stdlib/constants-float64-high-word-exponent-mask' );

var x = 11.5;
var hi = getHighWord( x ); // 0 10000000010 01110000000000000000
// returns 1076297728

// Mask off all bits except for the exponent bits:
var out = hi & FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_EXPONENT_MASK; // 0 10000000010 00000000000000000000
// returns 1075838976

// Mask on the exponent bits and leave other bits unchanged:
out = hi | FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_EXPONENT_MASK; // 0 11111111111 01110000000000000000
// returns 2146893824
