# dflmin(3f) [bsd man page]

```FLMIN(3F)																 FLMIN(3F)

NAME
flmin, flmax, ffrac, dflmin, dflmax, dffrac, inmax - return extreme values

SYNOPSIS
function flmin()

function flmax()

function ffrac()

double precision function dflmin()

double precision function dflmax()

double precision function dffrac()

function inmax()

DESCRIPTION
Functions  flmin  and flmax return the minimum and maximum positive floating point values respectively.	Functions dflmin and dflmax return
the minimum and maximum positive double precision floating point values.  Function inmax returns the maximum positive integer value.

The functions ffrac and dffrac return the fractional accuracy of single and double precision floating point numbers respectively.  This	is
the difference between 1.0 and the smallest real number greater than 1.0.

These functions can be used by programs that must scale algorithms to the numerical range of the processor.

NAME
values - machine-dependent values

SYNOPSIS
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.

The number of bits in a specified type (e.g., int).

The value of a short integer with only the high-order bit set
(in most implementations, 0x8000).

The value of a long integer with only the high-order bit set
(in most implementations, 0x80000000).

The value of a regular integer with only the high-order bit set
(usually the same as or

The maximum value of a signed short integer
(in most implementations, 0x7FFF == 32767).

The maximum value of a signed long integer
(in most implementations, 0x7FFFFFFF == 2147483647).

The maximum value of a signed regular integer
(usually the same as or

The maximum value of a single-precision floating-point number,
and its natural logarithm.

The maximum value of a double-precision floating-point number,
and its natural logarithm.

The minimum positive value of a single-precision floating-point number,
and its natural logarithm.

The minimum positive value of a double-precision floating-point number,
and its natural logarithm.

The number of significant bits in the mantissa of a single-precision
floating-point number.

The number of significant bits in the mantissa of a double-precision
floating-point number.
