SCL.SimpleDataTypes.REAL Class Reference

EXPRESS definition: =================== The real data type has as its domain all rational, irrational and scientific real numbers. It is a specialization of the number data type. Syntax: 265 real_type = REAL [ '(' precision_spec ')' ] . 255 precision_spec = numeric_expression . Rational and irrational numbers have infnite resolution and are exact. Scientific numbers rep- resent quantities which are known only to a specified precision. The precision_spec is stated in terms of significant digits. A real number literal is represented by a mantissa and optional exponent. The number of digits making up the mantissa when all leading zeros have been removed is the number of significant digits. The known precision of a value is the number of leading digits that are necessary to the application. Rules and restrictions: a) The precision_spec gives the minimum number of digits of resolution that are re- quired. This expression shall evaluate to a positive integer value. b) When no resolution specification is given the precision of the real number is uncon- strained. Note 9.2.6: integer and real are both specializations of number; Python definition: ================== REAL both inherits from float and NUMBER
