Converting decimal strings into IEEE 754 binary floating point numbers. //! //! # Problem statement //! //! We are given a decimal string such as `12.34e56`. This string consists of integral (`12`), //! fractional (`45`), and exponent (`56`) parts. All parts are optional and interpreted as zero //! when missing. //! //! We seek the IEEE 754 floating point number that is closest to the exact value of the decimal //! string. It is well-known that many decimal strings do not have terminating representations in //! base two, so we round to 0.5 units in the last place (in other words, as well as possible). //! Ties, decimal values exactly half-way between two consecutive floats, are resolved with the //! half-to-even strategy, also known as banker's rounding. //! //! Needless to say, this is quite hard, both in terms of implementation complexity and in terms //! of CPU cycles taken. //! //! # Implementation //! //! First, we ignore signs. Or rather, we remove it at the very beginning of the conversion //! process and re-apply it at the very end. This is correct in all edge cases since IEEE //! floats are symmetric around zero, negating one simply flips the first bit. //! //! Then we remove the decimal point by adjusting the exponent: Conceptually, `12.34e56` turns //! into `1234e54`, which we describe with a positive integer `f = 1234` and an integer `e = 54`. //! The `(f, e)` representation is used by almost all code past the parsing stage. //! //! We then try a long chain of progressively more general and expensive special cases using //! machine-sized integers and small, fixed-sized floating point numbers (first `f32`/`f64`, then //! a type with 64 bit significand, `Fp`). When all these fail, we bite the bullet and resort to a //! simple but very slow algorithm that involved computing `f * 10^e` fully and doing an iterative //! search for the best approximation. //! //! Primarily, this module and its children implement the algorithms described in: //! "How to Read Floating Point Numbers Accurately" by William D. Clinger, //! available online: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/summary?doi=10.1.1.45.4152 //! //! In addition, there are numerous helper functions that are used in the paper but not available //! in Rust (or at least in core). Our version is additionally complicated by the need to handle //! overflow and underflow and the desire to handle subnormal numbers. Bellerophon and //! Algorithm R have trouble with overflow, subnormals, and underflow. We conservatively switch to //! Algorithm M (with the modifications described in section 8 of the paper) well before the //! inputs get into the critical region. //! //! Another aspect that needs attention is the ``RawFloat`` trait by which almost all functions //! are parametrized. One might think that it's enough to parse to `f64` and cast the result to //! `f32`. Unfortunately this is not the world we live in, and this has nothing to do with using //! base two or half-to-even rounding. //! //! Consider for example two types `d2` and `d4` representing a decimal type with two decimal //! digits and four decimal digits each and take "0.01499" as input. Let's use half-up rounding. //! Going directly to two decimal digits gives `0.01`, but if we round to four digits first, //! we get `0.0150`, which is then rounded up to `0.02`. The same principle applies to other //! operations as well, if you want 0.5 ULP accuracy you need to do *everything* in full precision //! and round *exactly once, at the end*, by considering all truncated bits at once. //! //! FIXME Although some code duplication is necessary, perhaps parts of the code could be shuffled //! around such that less code is duplicated. Large parts of the algorithms are independent of the //! float type to output, or only needs access to a few constants, which could be passed in as //! parameters. //! //! # Other //! //! The conversion should *never* panic. There are assertions and explicit panics in the code, //! but they should never be triggered and only serve as internal sanity checks. Any panics should //! be considered a bug. //! //! There are unit tests but they are woefully inadequate at ensuring correctness, they only cover //! a small percentage of possible errors. Far more extensive tests are located in the directory //! `src/etc/test-float-parse` as a Python script. //! //! A note on integer overflow: Many parts of this file perform arithmetic with the decimal //! exponent `e`. Primarily, we shift the decimal point around: Before the first decimal digit, //! after the last decimal digit, and so on. This could overflow if done carelessly. We rely on //! the parsing submodule to only hand out sufficiently small exponents, where "sufficient" means //! "such that the exponent +/- the number of decimal digits fits into a 64 bit integer". //! Larger exponents are accepted, but we don't do arithmetic with them, they are immediately //! turned into {positive,negative} {zero,infinity}. #![doc(hidden)] #![unstable(feature = "dec2flt", reason = "internal routines only exposed for testing", issue = "0")] use fmt; use str::FromStr; use self::parse::{parse_decimal, Decimal, Sign, ParseResult}; use self::num::digits_to_big; use self::rawfp::RawFloat; mod algorithm; mod table; mod num; // These two have their own tests. pub mod rawfp; pub mod parse; macro_rules! from_str_float_impl { ($t:ty) => { #[stable(feature = "rust1", since = "1.0.0")] impl FromStr for $t { type Err = ParseFloatError; /// Converts a string in base 10 to a float. /// Accepts an optional decimal exponent. /// /// This function accepts strings such as /// /// * '3.14' /// * '-3.14' /// * '2.5E10', or equivalently, '2.5e10' /// * '2.5E-10' /// * '.'
