convert to single precision floating point

 

Description

Examples

Description

• 

The single(expr) function evaluates expr numerically at a precision of no less than Digits := 10.  If possible, the computation is done using the floating-point hardware of the underlying system via evalhf (which uses double precision). Otherwise the evaluation is done in single precision.

• 

Division by zero will be trapped and Float(infinity) returned instead of raising an error.
