Function Documentation

constexpr real operator""_real ( long double  x)

User defined literal for real numbers.

Examples: 2._real, 2.5_real, .5_real. The number is always of type real.

It is best to use a real constant whenever it is used only with operands which are real. If a constant is double than the compiler is forced to do operations directly involving the constant in double even if all variables are real. A constant shouldn't be real when used with double operands, because then the constant is less accurate with GMX_DOUBLE=no.

See https://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/language/user_literal for details on this lanuage feature.
