toFloat64

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status Dependencies

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

Installation

$ npm install math-float64-from-words

Usage

var toFloat64 = require( 'math-float64-from-words' );

toFloat64( 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 val = toFloat64( 1774486211, 2479577218 );
// returns 3.14e201
 
val = toFloat64( 3221823995, 1413754136 );
// returns 3.141592653589793
 
val = toFloat64( 0, 0 );
// returns 0
 
val = toFloat64( 2147483648, 0 );
// returns -0
 
val = toFloat64( 2146959360, 0 );
// returns NaN
 
val = toFloat64( 2146435072, 0 );
// returns +infinity
 
val = toFloat64( 4293918720, 0 );
// returns -infinity

Notes

Examples

var round = require( 'math-round' );
var pow = require( 'math-power' );
var toFloat64 = require( 'math-float64-from-words' );
 
var MAX_UINT;
var high;
var low;
var x;
var i;
 
MAX_UINT = pow( 2, 32 ) - 1;
for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
    high = round( Math.random()*MAX_UINT );
    low = round( Math.random()*MAX_UINT );
    x = toFloat64( high, low );
    console.log( 'higher: %d. lower: %d. float: %d.', high, low, x );
}

To run the example code from the top-level application directory,

$ node ./examples/index.js

Tests

Unit

This repository uses tape for unit tests. To run the tests, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:

$ make test

All new feature development should have corresponding unit tests to validate correct functionality.

Test Coverage

This repository uses Istanbul as its code coverage tool. To generate a test coverage report, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:

$ make test-cov

Istanbul creates a ./reports/coverage directory. To access an HTML version of the report,

$ make view-cov

Browser Support

This repository uses Testling for browser testing. To run the tests in a (headless) local web browser, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:

$ make test-browsers

To view the tests in a local web browser,

$ make view-browser-tests
