binary precision in octave

Sorry to ask a simple question:

Can anyone tell me the binary precision to which numbers are stored in octave?
(I.e. the number of bits in the mantissa, ignoring exponent and any flag bits,
i.e. a number between 0 and 1 is stored to N-bit precision).

The size of "eps" suggest N=52.

With thanks.
