std::numeric_limits::digits(3) C++ Standard Libary std::numeric_limits::digits(3)


std::numeric_limits::digits - std::numeric_limits::digits


static const int digits; (until C++11)
static constexpr int digits; (since C++11)

The value of std::numeric_limits<T>::digits is the number of digits in base-radix
that can be represented by the type T without change. For integer types, this is the
number of bits not counting the sign bit and the padding bits (if any). For
floating-point types, this is the digits of the mantissa (for IEC 559/IEEE 754
implementations, this is the number of digits stored for the mantissa plus one,
because the mantissa has an implicit leading 1 and binary point).
