Constant Value:
implementation-dependent.

Description:
These constant variables provide a way for programs to examine the implementation-defined limits for the various float formats.

Of these variables, each which has "-normalized" in its name must have a value which is a normalized float, and each which does not have "-normalized" in its name may have a value which is either a normalized float or a denormalized float, as appropriate.

Of these variables, each which has "short-float" in its name must have a value which is a short float, each which has "single-float" in its name must have a value which is a single float, each which has "double-float" in its name must have a value which is a double float, and each which has "long-float" in its name must have a value which is a long float.

Notes:

Allegro CL Implementation Details:
None.
