numeric_limits::min

Returns the minimum normalized value for a type.

static Type min( ) throw( );

Return Value

The minimum normalized value for the type.

Remarks

The minimum normalized value is INT_MIN for type int and FLT_MIN for type float. The return value is meaningful if is_bounded is true or, if it is false, then is_signed is false.

Example

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

using namespace std;

int main( )
{
   cout << "The minimum value for type float is:  "
        << numeric_limits<float>::min( )
        << endl;
   cout << "The minimum value for type double is:  "
        << numeric_limits<double>::min( )
        << endl;
   cout << "The minimum value for type float is:  "
        << numeric_limits<int>::min( )
        << endl;
   cout << "The minimum value for type short int is:  "
        << numeric_limits<short int>::min( )
        << endl;
}

Output

The minimum value for type float is:  1.17549e-038
The minimum value for type double is:  2.22507e-308
The minimum value for type float is:  -2147483648
The minimum value for type short int is:  -32768
