Basic operations on floating-point numbers

  • since 0.6.1
type t = float
type fpclass = CCShims_.Stdlib.fpclass =
| FP_normal
| FP_subnormal
| FP_zero
| FP_infinite
| FP_nan
val nan : t

Equal to Stdlib.nan.

val max_value : t

Positive infinity. Equal to Stdlib.infinity.

val min_value : t

Negative infinity. Equal to Stdlib.neg_infinity.

val max_finite_value : t
val epsilon : t

The smallest positive float x such that 1.0 +. x <> 1.0. Equal to Stdlib.epsilon_float.

val is_nan : t -> bool

is_nan f returns true if f is NaN, false otherwise.

val add : t -> t -> t

Equal to (+.).

val sub : t -> t -> t

Equal to (-.).

val neg : t -> t

Equal to (~-.).

val abs : t -> t

The absolute value of a floating-point number. Equal to Stdlib.abs_float.

val scale : t -> t -> t

Equal to ( *. ).

val min : t -> t -> t
val max : t -> t -> t
val equal : t -> t -> bool
val compare : t -> t -> int
type 'a printer = Format.formatter -> 'a -> unit
type 'a random_gen = Random.State.t -> 'a
val pp : t printer
val hash : t -> int
val random : t -> t random_gen
val random_small : t random_gen
val random_range : t -> t -> t random_gen
val fsign : t -> t

fsign x is one of -1., -0., +0., +1., or nan if x is NaN.

  • since 0.7
val round : t -> t

round f returns the closest integer value, either above or below.

  • since 0.20
exception TrapNaN of string
val sign_exn : t -> int

sign_exn x will return the sign of x as 1, 0 or -1, or raise an exception TrapNaN if x is NaN. Note that infinities have defined signs in OCaml.

  • since 0.7
val to_int : t -> int

Alias to int_of_float. Unspecified if outside of the range of integers.

val of_int : int -> t

Alias to float_of_int.

val to_string : t -> string
val of_string_exn : string -> t

Alias to float_of_string.

  • raises Failure

    in case of failure.

  • since 1.2
val of_string : string -> t
val equal_precision : epsilon:t -> t -> t -> bool

Equality with allowed error up to a non negative epsilon value.

val classify : t -> fpclass

Return the class of the given floating-point number: normal, subnormal, zero, infinite or nan (not a number).

Infix Operators

val (>) : t -> t -> bool
  • since 0.17
val (<=) : t -> t -> bool
  • since 0.17
val (>=) : t -> t -> bool
  • since 0.17
val (+) : t -> t -> t

  • since 2.1
val (*) : t -> t -> t

  • since 2.1
val (/) : t -> t -> t

Division.

  • since 2.1
