**Formatting of Inf floating-point values**While debugging some problems of my own,
I stumbled on this curiosity:
$ set tcl_patchLevel
8.5.8
$ set f [expr 1.0/0.0]
Inf
$ format %f $f
1.#INF00
Is this right/expected/documented? I couldn't find
anything about Inf or Nan in the [format] man pages.
This is on Windows; is it perhaps a quirk of the
underlying C library? On Linux I only have Tcl8.4,
where [expr] doesn't let me do divide-by-zero, but
its [format %f Inf] yields "inf" as I would expect
(isn't that what the C standard says?).
thanks

**Formatting floating point values in ostream objects**This C program:
#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>
int main()
{
float value;
for(value = -1.0f; 1.1f > value; value += 0.1f){
printf("%.1f\n", value);
}
return 0;
}
Produces this output:
-1.0
-0.9
-0.8
-0.7
-0.6
-0.5
-0.4
-0.3
-0.2
-0.1

**hex value ==> floating point value**Question:
For our GPS application I need to convert the minutes part (heximal value)
to a decimal/floating point value.
So: 41609218 (4 bytes) has to be converted to: 14.034 (approx)
(format of the float is IEEE-754 )

**Convert floating point values to fixed point?**Hello,
I want to try using an fixed point based FFT routine instead of the current
floating point based routine. I have a user of my software that has a 800
Mhz VIA chipset motherboard, and the FPU on that thing is so bad, it can't
crunch an audio signal in real time (i.e. - while they are talking). On
non-VIA systems the computer is able to keep up in real time (it's a speech
recognition app.)
I found the KISS FFT project on SourceForge which is able to do fixed point
FFT as well as floating point

However, when I use it compiled with fixe...

You can't!
MATLAB has (limited) support for single precision, but if you need
arbitrary precision you need the Symbolic Toolbox.

**Metastock Date Format (Microsoft Binary Floating Point Format)**Hi
I'm working on a program in Clipper 5.2d that reads Metastock data
files and then does various stuff with the extracted data.
Fortunately I found a document titled, unsurprisingly, 'MetaStock File
Format' by someone called Gianluca Scacco (http://
www.mirrorservice.org/sites/download.sourceforge.net/pub/sourceforge/m/ms/mstockfl/MetaStock.pdf)
and with the information therein have worked out most of what I need
to know, except how to decode the date values.
According to Mr Scacco's excellent document, date values are stored as
four bytes and are of type "Float CVS"...

**writing decimal values to z.-formatted fixed point values**Hello all
I find myself in the situation of having to write a value of, say,

the example).
Is there a convenient SAS format to do this ?
Thank you very much indeed

**MatLab database problem~to get integer values instead of floating-point values**Hi All,
I met a problem when programming a simple database application at
MatLab.
As you see the following code,
SELECT query would two data (base_dt and sum(rtn) ) from database.
one (base_dt column) is date-format.
the other ( sum(rtn) column ) is floating-point value.
but when running the following code, the second field is returned to be
integer instead of floating-point value.
the first field is what i expected : date format
In my thought, problem is related with the functions in query.
I failed to solve this problem by "setdbprefs".

**floating point values**Hello.
I have a function that reads values from an image and uses
that number as an array index for a lookup table.
This works find for double type data that are integers.
My problem is when i try to use images that are floating

array cannot be accessed using non-integer or literal values.
I need some way of reading the floating point data and
converting it into a representative value that is suitable

**floating point values**how can I take the fractional part of a floating point value
such that I can store that value into an integer type?
float foo = 6.180;
now take the fractional part
such that you can store 180 into an object
of type int or any other integer type.
I'm looking for way not involving the use of
float -> string -> parse string -> get 180 -> convert to int
but a process involving
float -> int

**analysis of floating point values**hi, is there a way by which we can see a bit-by bit representation of
how a floating point value is stored? I was thinking something similar
to how we shift bits using the >> and << operators but they only work

the value is in bytes and then analyse every bit in every byte. Is
this possible?
thanks!

**Floating Point Formats are not linked**hi
Its been Given that Which error are you likely to get when you run the
following program?
main()
{
struct emp
{
char name[20];
float sal;
};
struct emp e[10];
int i;
for(i=0;i<=9;i++)
scanf("%s%f", e[i].name,&e[i].sal);
}
The answer given is Floating point formats are not linked.
so why this error will come ?
Before I get on to what neha said, I'll make a prediction, based purely on
the subject line. My prediction is that he's using a Borland compiler.

I haven't used VisualDSP, so I'm not quite familiar with VisualDSP

**Confused about Floating Point format**The "Art of Assembly" book (sec. 4.2) describes that binary strings
that represent floating point numbers practically always have a
mantisa that has a H.O. bit of "1" and thus normalized, but then it
goes on to mention that if it isnt normalized then you should
left-shift the mantisa. This doesn't compute to me, can anyone help?

**invalid floating point value**OK, I realize that what I am asking here is not likely to have a
answer within the C standard. Nonetheless, it is not specific
to any particular platform, so I'll hazard the question anyway.
A C double can be aliased by an array of unsigned char, to which
any desired byte pattern may be written. Is there any somewhat
portable way of assigning a byte pattern such that the result
will, with very high probability, _not_ count as a valid double?
I ask because I'm in search of a mechanism for flagging "missing
values" in an array of doubles. I'm aware that the "best&...

**components of a floating point value**
I would like to portably extract the components of a floating point value:
sign, exponent, and significand. Based on the C floating point model
described in 5.2.4.2.2, I came up with the following code. There are
a couple of things to note about this code.
1) I convert the significand to an integer value in which the least
significant bit(s) of the integer correspond/s to the least significant
digit of the significand. This means that only as many low-order bits as
needed to encode DBL_MANT_DIG digits of the floating point radix are
significant in the integer value.
2) I assume that a...

**Comparing Floating Point Values**I was wondering if there was a convention for comparing 2 floats
