Hi fellow clispers, I have written the following functions which determine the various floatingpointepsilons. I get discrepancies for the doublefloat*epsilon values on my machine. I don't think, that my FPCoprocessor is wrong. Maybe there is just a wrong definition shipped with clisp. If you want to read, what this all is about, have a look at: http://www.xanalys.com/software_tools/reference/HyperSpec/Body/v_short_.htm Simply load the functions given below and enter into the repl: (testepsilons) Could you give them a try and report your results for your local installation to clisplist? That would be very kind! Thanks! Bye, Stefan =============================================================== (defun testposepsilon (<EPSILON>) (= (float 1 <EPSILON>) (+ (float 1 <EPSILON>) <EPSILON>))) (defun testnegepsilon (<EPSILON>) (= (float 1 <EPSILON>) ( (float 1 <EPSILON>) <EPSILON>))) (defun binarysearch (lower_bound upper_bound old_value precision testfun) (let* ((new_bound (/ (+ (float lower_bound precision) (float upper_bound precision)) 2)) (new_value (float new_bound precision))) (if (= old_value new_value) ;; then ;; (format t "~A ~A~%" old_string new_string) (float upper_bound precision) ;; else (progn ;; (format t "~A ~A~%" (float lower_bound precision) ;; (float upper_bound precision)) (if (funcall testfun new_bound) ;; then (binarysearch new_bound upper_bound new_value precision testfun) ;; else (binarysearch lower_bound new_bound new_value precision testfun)))))) ;;;; test: (defun testepsilons () (let ((fmt "~30E~30E~30E~%")) (format t "~30<~A~>~30<~A~>~30<~A~>~%" "system value" "computed value" "difference") ;; shortfloatepsilon: (format t "shortfloatepsilon:~%") (format t fmt shortfloatepsilon (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0s0 #'testposepsilon) ( (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0s0 #'testposepsilon) shortfloatepsilon)) ;; shortfloatnegativeepsilon: (format t "shortfloatnegativeepsilon:~%") (format t fmt shortfloatnegativeepsilon (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0s0 #'testnegepsilon) ( (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0s0 #'testnegepsilon) shortfloatnegativeepsilon)) ;; singlefloatepsilon: (format t "singlefloatepsilon:~%") (format t fmt singlefloatepsilon (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0 #'testposepsilon) ( (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0 #'testposepsilon) singlefloatepsilon)) ;; singlefloatnegativeepsilon: (format t "singlefloatnegativeepsilon:~%") (format t fmt singlefloatnegativeepsilon (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0 #'testnegepsilon) ( (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0 #'testnegepsilon) singlefloatnegativeepsilon)) ;; doublefloatepsilon: (format t "doublefloatepsilon:~%") (format t fmt doublefloatepsilon (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0d0 #'testposepsilon) ( (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0d0 #'testposepsilon) doublefloatepsilon)) ;; doublefloatnegativeepsilon: (format t "doublefloatnegativeepsilon:~%") (format t fmt doublefloatnegativeepsilon (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0d0 #'testnegepsilon) ( (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0d0 #'testnegepsilon) doublefloatnegativeepsilon)) ;; longfloatepsilon: (format t "longfloatepsilon:~%") (format t fmt longfloatepsilon (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0l0 #'testposepsilon) ( (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0l0 #'testposepsilon) longfloatepsilon)) ;;longfloatnegativeepsilon: (format t "longfloatnegativeepsilon:~%") (format t fmt longfloatnegativeepsilon (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0l0 #'testnegepsilon) ( (binarysearch 0.0 1.0 0.0 1.0l0 #'testnegepsilon) longfloatnegativeepsilon))))
