## FEPS Single Precision Floating Point Relative Machine Precision Epsilon

Section: Base Constants

### Usage

Returns`feps`

, which quantifies the relative machine precision
of floating point numbers (a machine specific quantity). The syntax
for `feps`

is:
y = feps

which returns `feps`

for `single`

precision values. For most
typical processors, this value is approximately `2^-24`

, or 5.9604e-8.

### Example

The following example demonstrates the use of the`feps`

function,
and one of its numerical consequences.
--> feps ans = 1.1921e-07 --> 1.0f+eps ans = 1
