signbit

Return a boolean indicating if the sign bit for a single-precision floating-point number is on (true) or off (false).

Usage

var signbitf = require( '@stdlib/number/float32/base/signbit' );

signbitf( x )

Returns a boolean indicating if the sign bit for a single-precision floating-point number is on (true) or off (false).

var toFloat32 = require( '@stdlib/number/float64/base/to-float32' );

var bool = signbitf( toFloat32( 4.0 ) );
// returns false

bool = signbitf( toFloat32( -9.14e-34 ) );
// returns true

bool = signbitf( 0.0 );
// returns false

bool = signbitf( -0.0 );
// returns true

Examples

var toFloat32 = require( '@stdlib/number/float64/base/to-float32' );
var randu = require( '@stdlib/random/base/randu' );
var signbitf = require( '@stdlib/number/float32/base/signbit' );

var sign;
var x;
var i;

for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
    x = (randu()*100.0) - 50.0;
    x = toFloat32( x );
    sign = signbitf( x );
    sign = ( sign ) ? 'true' : 'false';
    console.log( 'x: %d. signbit: %s.', x, sign );
