The MachineConstants type exposes the following members.
The Single and Double
floating-point types in the Common Language Specification
follow the IEEE-754 standard for single and
double-precision floating-point numbers.
Any number representation is necessarily limited.
This class provides constants that specify these limits
for the CLS' floating-point types.
Many of these constants are also available in
the Single and Double
classes. Unfortunately, these definitions do not follow
the standard conventions.
