Returns an integer corresponding to the unbiased exponent of a double-precision floating-point numberieee754.

Installation

$ npm install math-float64-exponent

Usage

var exponent = require( 'math-float64-exponent' );

exponent( x )

Returns an integer corresponding to the unbiased exponent of a double-precision floating-point numberieee754.
var exp = exponent( 3.14e307 );
// returns 1021 => 2**1021 ~ 1e307

var exp = exponent( 3.14e-307 );
// returns -1019 => 2**-1019 ~ 1e-307

exp = exponent( -3.14 );
// returns 1

exp = exponent( 0 );
// returns 0

exp = exponent( NaN );
// returns 1024 => 2**1024 ~ infinity

Examples

var round = require( 'math-round' );
var pow = require( 'math-power' );
var exponent = require( 'math-float64-exponent' );

var frac;
var exp;
var x;
var e;
var i;

// Generate random numbers and extract their exponents...
for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
	frac = Math.random() * 10;
	exp = round( Math.random()*646 ) - 323;
	x = frac * pow( 10, exp );
	e = exponent( x );
	console.log( 'x: %d. unbiased exponent: %d.', x, e );
}

Tests

Unit

This repository uses tapetape for unit tests. To run the tests, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:
$ make test

All new feature development should have corresponding unit tests to validate correct functionality.

Test Coverage

This repository uses Istanbulistanbul as its code coverage tool. To generate a test coverage report, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:
$ make test-cov

Istanbul creates a ./reports/coverage directory. To access an HTML version of the report,
$ make view-cov

Browser Support

This repository uses Testlingtestling for browser testing. To run the tests in a (headless) local web browser, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:
$ make test-browsers

To view the tests in a local web browser,
