Initializer

init(floatLiteral:)

Creates a new value from the given floating-point literal.

Declaration

init(floatLiteral value: Float80)

Parameters

value

The new floating-point value.

Discussion

Do not call this initializer directly. It is used by the compiler when you create a new Float80 instance by using a floating-point literal. Instead, create a new value by using a literal.

In this example, the assignment to the x constant calls this initializer behind the scenes.

let x: Float80 = 21.25
// x == 21.25
