Initializer

init(_:)

Creates a new instance initialized to the given value.

Declaration

init(_ other: Float)

Parameters

other

The value to use for the new instance.

Discussion

The value of other is represented exactly by the new instance. A NaN passed as other results in another NaN, with a signaling NaN value converted to quiet NaN.

let x: Float = 21.25
let y = Float(x)
// y == 21.25

let z = Float(Float.nan)
// z.isNaN == true
