In implementations that support the Numerics Annex,
the model-oriented attributes of floating point types shall yield the
values defined here, in both the strict and the relaxed modes. These
definitions add conditions to those in A.5.3.

For every subtype S
of a floating point type *T*:

Yields the number of digits in the mantissa of the canonical form of the model numbers of

where *d*
is the requested decimal precision of *T*, and *g*
is 0 if *T*'Machine_Radix is a positive power of 10 and 1 otherwise.
In addition, *T*'Model_Mantissa shall be less than or equal to the
value of *T*'Machine_Mantissa. This attribute yields a value of
the type *universal_integer*.

Yields the minimum exponent of the canonical form of the model numbers
of *T* (see A.5.3). The value of this
attribute shall be greater than or equal to the value of *T*'Machine_Emin.
This attribute yields a value of the type *universal_integer*.

Yields the lower bound of the safe range of *T*. The value of this
attribute shall be a model number of *T* and greater than or equal
to the lower bound of the base range of *T*. In addition, if *T*
is declared by a floating_point_definition
or is derived from such a type, and the floating_point_definition
includes a real_range_specification
specifying a lower bound of *lb*, then
the value of this attribute shall be less than or equal to *lb*;
otherwise, it shall be less than or equal to –10.0 ^{4
· d},
where *d* is the requested decimal precision
of *T*. This attribute yields a value of the type *universal_real*.

Yields the upper bound of the safe range of *T*. The value of this
attribute shall be a model number of *T* and less than or equal
to the upper bound of the base range of *T*. In addition, if *T*
is declared by a floating_point_definition
or is derived from such a type, and the floating_point_definition
includes a real_range_specification
specifying an upper bound of *ub*, then
the value of this attribute shall be greater than or equal to *ub*;
otherwise, it shall be greater than or equal to 10.0 ^{4
· d},
where d is the requested decimal precision of *T*. This attribute
yields a value of the type *universal_real*.

Denotes a function (of a parameter *X*) whose specification is given
in A.5.3. If *X* is a model number of
*T*, the function yields *X*; otherwise, it yields the value
obtained by rounding or truncating *X* to either one of the adjacent
model numbers of *T*. Constraint_Error
is raised if the resulting model number is outside the safe range of
S. A zero result has the sign of *X* when S'Signed_Zeros is True.

Subject to the constraints
given above, the values of S'Model_Mantissa and S'Safe_Last are to be
maximized, and the values of S'Model_Emin and S'Safe_First minimized,
by the implementation as follows:

First, S'Model_Mantissa is set to the largest value
for which values of S'Model_Emin, S'Safe_First, and S'Safe_Last can be
chosen so that the implementation satisfies the strict-mode requirements
of G.2.1 in terms of the model numbers and
safe range induced by these attributes.

Next, S'Model_Emin is set to the smallest value
for which values of S'Safe_First and S'Safe_Last can be chosen so that
the implementation satisfies the strict-mode requirements of G.2.1
in terms of the model numbers and safe range induced by these attributes
and the previously determined value of S'Model_Mantissa.

Finally, S'Safe_First and S'Safe_Last are set (in
either order) to the smallest and largest values, respectively, for which
the implementation satisfies the strict-mode requirements of G.2.1
in terms of the model numbers and safe range induced by these attributes
and the previously determined values of S'Model_Mantissa and S'Model_Emin.
