Type Alias


An unsigned integer type that can represent the significand of any value.


typealias RawSignificand = UInt


The significand (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Significand) is frequently also called the “mantissa”, but this terminology is slightly incorrect (see the “Use of ‘mantissa’” section on the linked Wikipedia page for more details). “Significand” is the preferred terminology in IEEE 754.
