## Documentation ¶

### Index ¶

### Constants ¶

`const IntSize = intSize`

IntSize is the size in bits of an int or uint value.

### Variables ¶

`var ErrRange = errors.New("value out of range")`

ErrRange indicates that a value is out of range for the target type.

`var ErrSyntax = errors.New("invalid syntax")`

ErrSyntax indicates that a value does not have the right syntax for the target type.

### Functions ¶

#### func ParseFloat ¶

ParseFloat converts the string s to a floating-point number with the precision specified by bitSize: 32 for float32, or 64 for float64. When bitSize=32, the result still has type float64, but it will be convertible to float32 without changing its value.

ParseFloat accepts decimal and hexadecimal floating-point number syntax. If s is well-formed and near a valid floating-point number, ParseFloat returns the nearest floating-point number rounded using IEEE754 unbiased rounding. (Parsing a hexadecimal floating-point value only rounds when there are more bits in the hexadecimal representation than will fit in the mantissa.)

The errors that ParseFloat returns have concrete type *NumError and include err.Num = s.

If s is not syntactically well-formed, ParseFloat returns err.Err = ErrSyntax.

If s is syntactically well-formed but is more than 1/2 ULP away from the largest floating point number of the given size, ParseFloat returns f = ±Inf, err.Err = ErrRange.

ParseFloat recognizes the strings "NaN", "+Inf", and "-Inf" as their respective special floating point values. It ignores case when matching.

#### func ParseInt ¶

ParseInt interprets a string s in the given base (0, 2 to 36) and bit size (0 to 64) and returns the corresponding value i.

If base == 0, the base is implied by the string's prefix: base 2 for "0b", base 8 for "0" or "0o", base 16 for "0x", and base 10 otherwise. Also, for base == 0 only, underscore characters are permitted per the Go integer literal syntax. If base is below 0, is 1, or is above 36, an error is returned.

The bitSize argument specifies the integer type that the result must fit into. Bit sizes 0, 8, 16, 32, and 64 correspond to int, int8, int16, int32, and int64. If bitSize is below 0 or above 64, an error is returned.

The errors that ParseInt returns have concrete type *NumError and include err.Num = s. If s is empty or contains invalid digits, err.Err = ErrSyntax and the returned value is 0; if the value corresponding to s cannot be represented by a signed integer of the given size, err.Err = ErrRange and the returned value is the maximum magnitude integer of the appropriate bitSize and sign.
