    From Words

    NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

    Create a double-precision floating-point number from a higher order word and a lower order word.

    Installation

    npm install @stdlib/number-float64-base-from-words

    Usage

    var fromWords = require( '@stdlib/number-float64-base-from-words' );

    fromWords( high, low )

    Creates a double-precision floating-point number from a higher order word (unsigned 32-bit integer) and a lower order word (unsigned 32-bit integer).

    var v = fromWords( 1774486211, 2479577218 );
    // returns 3.14e201
    
    v = fromWords( 3221823995, 1413754136 );
    // returns -3.141592653589793
    
    v = fromWords( 0, 0 );
    // returns 0.0
    
    v = fromWords( 2147483648, 0 );
    // returns -0.0
    
    v = fromWords( 2146959360, 0 );
    // returns NaN
    
    v = fromWords( 2146435072, 0 );
    // returns Infinity
    
    v = fromWords( 4293918720, 0 );
    // returns -Infinity

    Notes

    • For more information regarding higher and lower order words, see to-words.

    Examples

    var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
    var round = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-round' );
    var MAX_UINT32 = require( '@stdlib/constants-uint32-max' );
    var fromWords = require( '@stdlib/number-float64-base-from-words' );
    
    var high;
    var low;
    var x;
    var i;
    
    for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
        high = round( randu()*MAX_UINT32 );
        low = round( randu()*MAX_UINT32 );
        x = fromWords( high, low );
        console.log( 'higher: %d. lower: %d. float: %d.', high, low, x );
    }

    C APIs

    Usage

    #include "stdlib/number/float64/base/from_words.h"

    stdlib_base_float64_from_words( high, low, *x )

    Creates a double-precision floating-point number from a higher order word and a lower order word.

    #include <stdint.h>
    
    uint32_t high = 1074339512;
    uint32_t low = 1374389535;
    
    double x;
    stdlib_base_float64_from_words( high, low, &x );

    The function accepts the following arguments:

    • high: [in] uint32_t higher order word.
    • low: [in] uint32_t lower order word.
    • x: [out] double* destination for a double-precision floating-point number.
    void stdlib_base_float64_from_words( const uint32_t high, const uint32_t low, double *x );

    Examples

    #include "stdlib/number/float64/base/from_words.h"
    #include <stdint.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main() {
        uint32_t high = 1074339512;
        uint32_t low[] = { 0, 10000, 1000000, 1374389535 };
    
        double x;
        int i;
        for ( i = 0; i < 4; i++ ) {
            stdlib_base_float64_from_words( high, low[ i ], &x );
            printf( "high: %u, low: %u => %lf\n", high, low[ i ], x );
        }
    }

    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.
