Significand Mask

High word mask for the significand of a double-precision floating-point number.

Usage

var FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_SIGNIFICAND_MASK = require( '@stdlib/constants/math/float64-high-word-significand-mask' );

FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_SIGNIFICAND_MASK

High word mask for the significand of a double-precision floating-point number.

// 0x000fffff = 1048575 => 0 00000000000 11111111111111111111
var bool = ( FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_SIGNIFICAND_MASK === 0x000fffff );
// returns true

Notes

Examples

var getHighWord = require( '@stdlib/number/float64/base/get-high-word' );
var FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_SIGNIFICAND_MASK = require( '@stdlib/constants/math/float64-high-word-significand-mask' );

var out;
var hi;
var x;

x = 11.5;
hi = getHighWord( x ); // => 0 10000000010 01110000000000000000
// returns 1076297728

// Mask off all bits except for the significand bits:
out = hi & FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_SIGNIFICAND_MASK; // => 0 00000000000 01110000000000000000
// returns 458752

// Mask on the significand bits and leave other bits unchanged:
out = hi | FLOAT64_HIGH_WORD_SIGNIFICAND_MASK; // => 0 10000000010 11111111111111111111
// returns 1076887551
