How Many Digits Does a Floating-Point Variable Have?

The standard function template std::numeric_limits (defined in < limits >) returns the implementation-dependent number of digits that a certain type has:

#include <limits> int main() { std::numeric_limits < float >::digits10; //6 on my machine std::numeric_limits < double >::digits10; // 15 std::numeric_limits < long double >::digits10; // 18 }
