# Absolute Value

Compute an absolute value of a signed 32-bit integer.

The absolute value is defined as

## Installation

`npm install @stdlib/math-base-special-labs`

## Usage

`var labs = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-labs' );`

#### labs( x )

Computes an absolute value of a signed 32-bit integer.

```var v = labs( -1|0 );
// returns 1

v = labs( 2|0 );
// returns 2

v = labs( 0|0 );
// returns 0```

## Notes

• The implementation assumes two's complement.

• In two's complement systems, the absolute value of the minimum signed 32-bit integer is out-of-range. The absolute value for the minimum signed 32-bit integer is thus undefined.

```// -2^31
var x = -2147483648|0;

var v = labs( x );
// returns -2147483648```

## Examples

```var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
var round = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-round' );
var labs = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-labs' );

var x;
var i;

for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
x = round( randu() * 100.0 ) - 50;
console.log( 'abs(%d) = %d', x, labs( x|0 ) );
}```

## Installation

`npm install @stdlib/math-base-special-labs`

### Usage

`#include "stdlib/math/base/special/labs.h"`

#### stdlib_base_labs( x )

Computes the absolute value of a signed 32-bit integer in two's complement format.

```#include <stdint.h>

int32_t y = stdlib_base_labs( -5 );
// returns 5```

The function accepts the following arguments:

• x: `[in] int32_t` input value.
`int32_t stdlib_base_labs( const int32_t x );`

### Examples

```#include "stdlib/math/base/special/labs.h"
#include <stdint.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main() {
int32_t x[] = { 3, -3, 0, -10 };

int32_t y;
int i;
for ( i = 0; i < 4; i++ ) {
y = stdlib_base_labs( x[ i ] );
printf( "|%i| = %i\n", x[ i ], y );
}
}```

## Notice

This package is part of stdlib, a standard library for JavaScript and Node.js, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computing. The library provides a collection of robust, high performance libraries for mathematics, statistics, streams, utilities, and more.
