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!

toWord

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

Return an unsigned 32-bit integer corresponding to the IEEE 754 binary representation of a single-precision floating-point number.

Installation

npm install @stdlib/number-float32-base-to-word

Usage

var toWordf = require( '@stdlib/number-float32-base-to-word' );

toWordf( x )

Returns an unsigned 32-bit integer corresponding to the IEEE 754 binary representation of a single-precision floating-point number.

var float64ToFloat32 = require( '@stdlib/number-float64-base-to-float32' );

var f32 = float64ToFloat32( 1.337 );
// returns 1.3370000123977661

var w = toWordf( f32 ); // => 0 01111111 01010110010001011010001
// returns 1068180177

Notes

  • The equivalent of this function in C/C++,

    unsigned int toWordf(float x) {
        return *(unsigned int*)&x;
    }

Examples

var float64ToFloat32 = require( '@stdlib/number-float64-base-to-float32' );
var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
var toWordf = require( '@stdlib/number-float32-base-to-word' );

var word;
var f64;
var f32;
var i;

// Convert single-precision floating-point numbers to integers representing the binary literal...
for ( i = 0; i < 1000; i++ ) {
    f64 = (randu()*100.0) - 50.0;
    f32 = float64ToFloat32( f64 );
    word = toWordf( f32 );
    console.log( 'float64: %d => float32: %d => word: %d', f64, f32, word );
}

C APIs

Usage

#include "stdlib/number/float32/base/to_word.h"

stdlib_base_float32_to_word( x, *word )

Converts a single-precision floating-point number to an unsigned 32-bit integer corresponding to the number's IEEE 754 binary representation.

#include <stdint.h>

uint32_t word;
stdlib_base_float32_to_word( 3.14f, &word );

The function accepts the following arguments:

  • x: [in] float input value.
  • word: [out] uint32_t* destination.
void stdlib_base_float32_to_word( const float x, uint32_t *word );

stdlib_base_float32_word_t

An opaque type definition for a union for converting between a single-precision floating-point number and an unsigned 32-bit integer.

#include <stdint.h>

stdlib_base_float32_word_t w;

// Assign a single-precision floating-point number:
w.value = 3.14f;

// Retrieve the word:
uint32_t word = w.word;

The union has the following members:

Examples

#include "stdlib/number/float32/base/to_word.h"
#include <stdint.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main( void ) {
    float x[] = { 3.14f, -3.14f, 0.0f, 0.0f/0.0f };

    uint32_t word;
    int i;
    for ( i = 0; i < 4; i++ ) {
        stdlib_base_float32_to_word( x[ i ], &word );
        printf( "%f => word: %u\n", x[ i ], word );
    }
}
