robust-split

Use this package when you want to split a double precision floating point number into a 2-part non-overlapping sequence.

Why would you ever want to do that? Well these sequences are an efficient way to perform exact mathmatical operations on numbers in javascript.

install

npm install robust-split

If you want to use this in the browser, check out browserify

use

 
var rsplit = require('robust-split');
 
var p = rsplit(0.3);
 
console.log(p); //[ 2.980232227667301e-9,
                //  0.29999999701976776 ]

You could then pass the sequence into [robust-estimate-float](https://github.com/tmpvar/robust-estimate-float)

var num = require('robust-estimate-float');
 
var r = num(p);
 
console.log(r) // 0.3
