Floating point minimum values are positive?

Always amusing to run into those little quirks of parts of the
language you've never worked with before ...
I just realized that while e.g. int.min gives a negative value,
the floating point equivalent, e.g. double.min, gives a very
small positive value -- I guess the smallest possible positive
I guess this is intentional, so I thought I'd ask why -- it's a
little unintuitive after the integral type behaviour.
Also, how can I get the truly least value of a floating point
number? I guess with e.g. -double.max ... ?
