SYNOPSIS
#include <<values.h>>
DESCRIPTION
This file contains a set of manifest constants, conditionally defined
for particular processor architectures.
The model assumed for integers is binary representation (one's or two's
complement), where the sign is represented by the value of the high
order bit.
BITS(type) The number of bits in a specified type (for
instance, int).
HIBITS The value of a short integer with only the high
order bit set (in most implementations, 0x8000).
HIBITL The value of a long integer with only the high
order bit set (in most implementations,
0x80000000).
HIBITI The value of a regular integer with only the high
order bit set (usually the same as HIBITS or
HIBITL).
MAXSHORT The maximum value of a signed short integer (in
most implementations, 0x7FFF == 32767).
MAXLONG The maximum value of a signed long integer (in most
implementations, 0x7FFFFFFF == 2147483647).
MAXINT The maximum value of a signed regular integer (usu
ally the same as MAXSHORT or MAXLONG).
MAXFLOAT
LN_MAXFLOAT The maximum value of a singleprecision floating
point number, and its natural logarithm.
MAXDOUBLE
LN_MAXDOUBLE The maximum value of a doubleprecision floating
point number, and its natural logarithm.
MINFLOAT
LN_MINFLOAT The minimum positive value of a singleprecision
floatingpoint number, and its natural logarithm.
MINDOUBLE
LN_MINDOUBLE The minimum positive value of a doubleprecision
floatingpoint number, and its natural logarithm.
FSIGNIF The number of significant bits in the mantissa of a
singleprecision floatingpoint number.
DSIGNIF The number of significant bits in the mantissa of a
doubleprecision floatingpoint number.
