// int double2bigrational_interval(const double x,
// const unisgned long n,
// bigrational& l, bigrational& r)
//
// Finds a closed interval `[l, r]' of rational endpoints
// which contains an IEEE double precision floating-point number `x'
// and is of width `2^(- n)'.
//
// The denominators of `l' & `r' are always powers of 2.
//
// If possible, the denominators of `l' & `r' will be of length
// `num_bits + 1' bits or fewer.
//
// Returns 0 if successful,
// < 0 if unsuccessful (e.g. `x' is infinity, NaN, ...),
// > 0 if `n' is too strict (see below).
//
// `n' can be as large as 53 if `x' is normal or
// 52 if `x' is subnormal.
// If `n' is too large then the best approximation possible is made.
// In this case, a positive number is returned as a warning.
//
// Notes:
//
// (1) This does not attempt to find the best approximation to `x';
// it just makes a box of the specified size containing `x'.
//
// (2) It assumes that doubles are 64 bits, unsigned ints are 32 bits,
// and probably several other similar assumptions.
//
// (3) It should run in constant time; there are almost no loops.
//
// (4) It assumes that `x' is an exact binary number, whose unspecified
// low-order bits are all 0. That is, `x' is treated as if computed
// by truncation. It would have been better to assume that it was
// computed by rounding.
// example: given the 3-decimal-digit number 3.14, it produces
// the output [3.14, 3.15) when asked for 3 digits.
// Perhaps you'd rather have [3.13, 3.15) since 3.14 may have been
// rounded up from 3.136.
