HIBITL The value of a long integer with only the high-order bit set. HIBITI The value of a regular integer with only the high-order bit set. MAXSHORT The maximum value of a signed short integer. MAXLONG The maximum value of a signed long integer. MAXINT The maximum value of a signed regular integer. MAXFLOAT, LN_MAXFLOAT The maximum value of a single-precision floating-point number, and its natural logarithm. MAXDOUBLE, LN_MAXDOUBLE The maximum value of a double-precision floating-point number, and its natural logarithm. MINFLOAT, LN_MINFLOAT The minimum positive value of a single-precision floating-point number, and its natural logarithm. MINDOUBLE, LN_MINDOUBLE The minimum positive value of a double-precision floating-point number, and its natural logarithm. FSIGNIF The number of significant bits in the mantissa of a single-precision floating-point number. DSIGNIF The number of significant bits in the mantissa of a double-precision floating-point number.
