[APFloat] convertToDouble/Float can work on shorter types

Authored by sepavloff on May 18 2021, 1:15 AM.



Previously APFloat::convertToDouble may be called only for APFloats that
were built using double semantics. Other semantics like single precision
were not allowed although corresponding numbers could be converted to
double without loss of precision. The similar restriction applied to

With this change any APFloat that can be precisely represented by double
can be handled with convertToDouble. Behavior of convertToFloat was
updated similarly. It make the conversion operations more convenient and
adds support for numbers like half and bfloat.

Looks good to me but I'd appreciate a review from someone else as well.


This should be D2? So maybe use something stronger than EXPECT_EQ, that distinguishes +0 from -0?

You've made the same typo below for B2, H2, etc.


Instead of two EXPECT_TRUE checks can't you use EXPECT_EQ(std::numeric_limits<double>::infinity(), D10.convertToDouble()) ?

Maybe break this into shorter tests "HalfToDouble", "BFloatToDouble", "FloatToDouble" etc, to help avoid the variable mismatches noticed by @foad ?

Use meaningful variable names. Fixed some errors.

Use EXPECT_EQ in checks for infinity

Now meaningful names are used.


Thank you for the catch. Now meaningful names are used for the variables, it must help avoiding such errors.


The checks changed to use EXPECT_EQ.
