[Numpy-discussion] Rounding to next lowest float

Hi,
Can anyone think of a clever way to round an integer to the next
lowest integer represented in a particular floating point format?
For example:
In [247]: a = 2**25+3
This is out of range of the continuous integers representable by float32, hence:
In [248]: print a, int(np.float32(a))
33554435 33554436
But I want to round down (floor) the integer in float32. That is, in
this case I want:
>>> floor_exact(a, np.float32)
33554432
I can break the float into its parts to do it:
https://github.com/matthew-brett/nibabel/blob/f687bfc88d1676a09fc76c968a346bc81e4d0d04/nibabel/floating.py
but that's obviously rather ugly... Is there a simpler way? I'm sure
there is and I haven't thought of it...
Best,
Matthew
