**decimalDigits**Return the number of decimal digits of precision for a FloatD. Technically, if P is the precision for the representation, then the decimal precision Q is the maximum number of decimal digits such that any floating point number with Q base 10 digits can be rounded to a floating point number with P base 2 digits and back again, without change to the Q decimal digits.

**emax**Return the maximum allowable exponent for a FloatD that is finite.

**emin**Return the maximum allowable exponent for a FloatD that is finite.

**fmax**Return the largest normalized FloatD that is not infinite.

**fminNormalized**Return the smallest normalized FloatD that is > 0

**infinity**Return a FloatD that represents positive infinity.

**nan**Return a FloatD that represents a mathematically indeterminate value (e.g. Inf - Inf, Inf / Inf).

**negativeInfinity**Return a FloatD that represents negative infinity.

**precision**Answer the number of bits in the mantissa. 1 + (2^-precision) = 1
