java.lang.Object  +net.rim.device.api.math.Fixed32
The class Fixed32
is a collection of fixedpoint math
routines. Fixed32
uses the 16.16 convention to fix the
decimal point.
There are no add
or sub
methods because
they can be performed with regular integer +
and

operators. The goal is to keep this library to an
absolute minimum in size.
The methods of class Fixed32
are all static, and deal
with 32bit int
s.
The 16.16 convention uses the 16 mostsignificant bits of a
32bit int
to represent the whole part, and the 16
leastsignificant bits to represent the fractional part.
For example, 0x00010000
is the fixedpoint
representation of 1, 0x00018000
is the fixedpoint
representation of 1.5, and 0x00000001
is the
fixedpoint representation of 1/65536.
The numbers are signed, so negative numbers can be represented. The largest positive number in 16.16 format is just over 32767.9999, and the closest to negative infinity is 32768.0. The smallest increment between consecutive numbers is 1/65536 (which works out to about 0.00001526).
Fixed32
provides 2 methods for converting to
fixedpoint representation. The method toFP
converts an integer to fixedpoint:
int n = Fixed32.toFP(7); // 7.0The method
tenThouToFP
converts a quantity in
tenthousandths to fixedpoint:
int m = Fixed32.tenThouToFP(70625); // 7.0625Also, there are 2 methods for converting back from fixedpoint. The method
toInt
truncates any fractional part:
System.out.println(Fixed32.toInt(m)); // prints 7The method
toIntTenThou
returns a value in units
of tenthousandths:
System.out.println(Fixed32.toIntTenThou(m)); // prints 70625Fixedpoint numbers can be added, subtracted, negated, and compared using regular integer operators:
int result = m  n; // 7.0625  7.0 = 0.0625 result = result; // 0.0625 result = n; // 0.0625  7.0 = 7.0625 boolean b = (result == m); // true boolean bb = (m < n); // falseThe increment and decrement operators will not give expected results:
result = Fixed32.toFP(2); ++result; // WRONG! result will NOT be 3 result = Fixed32.toFP(2); result += Fixed32.toFP(1); // Correct: result will be 3If you are multiplying or dividing by an integer scalar, you may use the regular integer * and / operators. Otherwise you must use the
mul
or div
methods.
You must use mul
to multiply 2 fixedpoint
numbers, and you must use div
to divide 2
fixedpoint numbers!
m = Fixed32.tenThouToFP(12500); // 1.25 m *= 3; // OK: 1.25 * 3 = 3.75 m /= 2; // OK: 3.75 / 2 = 1.875 m = Fixed32.mul(m, Fixed32.tenThouToFP(15000)); // 1.875 * 1.5000 = 2.8125 m = Fixed32.div(m, m); // 2.8125 / 2.8125 = 1.0The
Fixed32
methods mul
, div
,
sqrt
, sind
, cosd
,
tand
, and atand2
all deal with
16.16 fixedpoint numbers:
m = Fixed32.tenThouToFP(172500); // 17.2500 n = Fixed32.sqrt(m); // sqrt(17.25) n = Fixed32.sind(m); // sine of 17.25 degrees n = Fixed32.cosd(m); // cosine of 17.25 degrees result = Fixed32.atand2(m, m); // returns 135.0 degrees in fixedpoint
