numeric_limits::tinyness_before

Tests whether a type can determine that a value is too small to represent as a normalized value before rounding it.

static const bool tinyness_before = false;

true if the type can detect tiny values before rounding; false if it cannot.

Types that can detect tinyness were included as an option with IEC 559 floating-point representations and its implementation can affect some results.

// numeric_limits_tinyness_before.cpp
// compile with: /EHsc
#include <iostream>
#include <limits>

using namespace std;

int main( )
{
   cout << "Whether float types can detect tinyness before rounding: "
        << numeric_limits<float>::tinyness_before
        << endl;
   cout << "Whether double types can detect tinyness before rounding: "
        << numeric_limits<double>::tinyness_before
        << endl;
   cout << "Whether long int types can detect tinyness before rounding: "
        << numeric_limits<long int>::tinyness_before
        << endl;
   cout << "Whether unsigned char types can detect tinyness before rounding: "
        << numeric_limits<unsigned char>::tinyness_before
        << endl;
}
Whether float types can detect tinyness before rounding: 1
Whether double types can detect tinyness before rounding: 1
Whether long int types can detect tinyness before rounding: 0
Whether unsigned char types can detect tinyness before rounding: 0
