std::numeric_limits<T>::radix: std::numeric_limits<T>::radix


std::numeric_limits<T>::radix - std::numeric_limits<T>::radix


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

The value of std::numeric_limits<T>::radix is the base of the number system used in the representation of the type. It is 2 for all binary numeric types, but it may be, for example, 10 for IEEE 754 decimal_floating-point_types or for third-party binary-coded_decimal integers. This constant is meaningful for all specializations.
