Hi Sebastian,

  I believe, the IEEE standard for the binary representation of
floating point numbers uses a single sign bit to tell negative
and positive values apart, so -FLT_MAX ought to be safe bet
for the largest negative number representable by a float on your
system.

Yours sincerely,

Bjorn
