NPM version Build Status Coverage Status dependencies

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

C APIs

Installation

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

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 );
    }
}
