WideScaleYou can use the
WideScalefunction to obtain the bit number of the highest-order nonzero bit in the absolute value of a
short WideScale(const wide *w);
- A pointer to the number whose scale is desired.
- function result
- The bit number of the highest order nonzero bit in the absolute value of
w. The returned value is 63 if the highest-order bit is set, and 0 if the lowest order bit is set. If no bit is set, the return value is -1.
