Abstract


   CSPICE_DPMIN returns the value of the smallest (negative)
   number representable in a double precision variable.

   For important details concerning this module's function, please refer to
   the CSPICE routine dpmin_c.

I/O

   
   Given:
   
      No input required.
   
   the call:
   
      min_dp = cspice_dpmin()
   
   returns:
   
      As scalar double precision value for the smallest (negative) 
      number that can be represented in a double precision variable.
   

Examples


   Any numerical results shown for this example may differ between
   platforms as the results depend on the SPICE kernels used as input
   and the machine specific arithmetic implementation.

   
      print, cspice_dpmin()
   
   IDL outputs (32 bit OS X):   -1.7976931e+308
