std::numeric_limits<T>::digits - std::numeric_limits<T>::digits


static const int digits; (until C++11)
static constexpr int digits; (since C++11)

The value of std::numeric_limits<T>::digits is the number of digits in base-radix that can be represented by the type T without change. For integer types, this is the number of bits not counting the sign bit and the padding bits (if any). For floating-point types, this is the number of digits in the mantissa.
