Produce a floating point using an encoding supplied as an integer.

Declaration[edit]

genType intBitsToFloat( genIType x );
genType uintBitsToFloat( genUType x );


Parameters[edit]

x - Specifies the bit encoding to return as a floating point value.


Description[edit]

 intBitsToFloat and uintBitsToFloat return the encoding passed in parameter x as a floating-point value. If the encoding of a NaN is passed in x , it will not signal and the resulting value will be undefined. If the encoding of a floating point infinity is passed in parameter x , the resulting floating-point value is the corresponding (positive or negative) floating point infinity.


Version Support[edit]
