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_SIGN_MASK

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

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

Installation

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

Usage

var FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_SIGN_MASK = require( '@stdlib/constants-float64-high-word-sign-mask' );

FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_SIGN_MASK

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

// 0x80000000 = 2147483648 => 1 00000000000 00000000000000000000
var bool = ( FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_SIGN_MASK === 0x80000000 );
// returns true

Notes

Examples

var getHighWord = require( '@stdlib/number-float64-base-get-high-word' );
var getLowWord = require( '@stdlib/number-float64-base-get-low-word' );
var fromWords = require( '@stdlib/number-float64-base-from-words' );
var FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_SIGN_MASK = require( '@stdlib/constants-float64-high-word-sign-mask' );

var x = -11.5;
var hi = getHighWord( x ); // 1 10000000010 01110000000000000000
// returns 3223781376

// Mask off all bits except for the sign bit:
var out = (hi & FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_SIGN_MASK)>>>0; // 1 00000000000 00000000000000000000
// returns 2147483648

// Turn off the sign bit and leave other bits unchanged:
out = hi & (~FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_SIGN_MASK); // 0 10000000010 01110000000000000000
// returns 1076297728

// Generate a new value:
out = fromWords( out, getLowWord( x ) );
// returns 11.5

C APIs

Usage

#include "stdlib/constants/float64/high_word_sign_mask.h"
