Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-7594) Float/DoublePoint should not recommend using Math.nextUp/nextDown for exclusive ranges
Date Thu, 15 Dec 2016 17:45:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-7594?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15751994#comment-15751994

Dawid Weiss commented on LUCENE-7594:
-------------------------------------

Ah, that is trappy... In a way it makes sense as -0.0f is 8000_0000 and min value is 0000_0001,
so if you disregard the sign bit there's some logic there. 

Patch looks good. I don't know if the compiler will be smart enough to avoid recomputing the
static {{Float.floatToIntBits(-0f)}}. An alternative would be to:
{code}
if (Float.compare(f, -0.0) == 0)
{code}
or simply compare the int representation (Float.toIntBits(f) == 0x8000_0000). Either way,
looks good to me.

> Float/Double points are supposed to be consistent with Double/Float.compare, so +0 is
supposed to compare greater than -0. However Math.nextUp/nextDown is not consistent with Double/Float.compare
and returns MIN_VALUE for nextUp(-0).
