Description: | Returns the value of the kind parameter of a real data type. | ||

Class: |
Transformational function; Generic | ||

Arguments: |
P (opt) | Must be scalar and of type integer. | |

R (opt) | Must be scalar and of type integer. | ||

At least one argument must be specified. | |||

Results: |
The result is a scalar of type default
integer. The result has a value equal to a value of the kind
parameter of a real data type with decimal precision, as returned by
the function PRECISION, of at least P digits and a decimal exponent
range, as returned by the function RANGE, of at least R.
If no such kind type parameter is available on the processor, the result is as follows: -1 if the precision is not available -2 if the exponent range is not available -3 if neither is available If more than one kind type parameter value meets the criteria, the value returned is the one with the smallest decimal precision. (For information on the real model, see Section D.2.) |
