static const bool is_iec559; | (until C++11) | |

static constexpr bool is_iec559; | (since C++11) |

The value of `std::numeric_limits<T>::is_iec559`

is `true`

for all floating-point types `T`

which fulfill the requirements of IEC 559 (IEEE 754) standard. If `std::numeric_limits<T>::is_iec559`

is `true`

, then `std::numeric_limits<T>::has_infinity`

, `std::numeric_limits<T>::has_quiet_NaN`

, and `std::numeric_limits<T>::has_signaling_NaN`

are also `true`

.

/* non-specialized */ | `false` |

`bool` | `false` |

`char` | `false` |

`signed char` | `false` |

`unsigned char` | `false` |

`wchar_t` | `false` |

`char16_t` | `false` |

`char32_t` | `false` |

`short` | `false` |

`unsigned short` | `false` |

`int` | `false` |

`unsigned int` | `false` |

`long` | `false` |

`unsigned long` | `false` |

`long long` | `false` |

`unsigned long long` | `false` |

`float` | usually `true` |

`double` | usually `true` |

`long double` | usually `true` |
