FREXP(3)						     Library Functions Manual							  FREXP(3)

NAME
frexp, ldexp, modf - split into mantissa and exponent SYNOPSIS
double frexp(value, eptr) double value; int *eptr; double ldexp(value, exp) double value; double modf(value, iptr) double value, *iptr; DESCRIPTION
Frexp returns the mantissa of a double value as a double quantity, x, of magnitude less than 1 and stores an integer n such that value = x*2n indirectly through eptr. Ldexp returns the quantity value*2exp. Modf returns the positive fractional part of value and stores the integer part indirectly through iptr. 7th Edition May 15, 1985 FREXP(3)

NAME
modf, modff, modfl - decompose floating-point number SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lm [ library... ] #include <math.h> double modf(double x, double *iptr); float modff(float x, float *iptr); long double modfl(long double x, long double *iptr); DESCRIPTION
These functions break the argument x into integral and fractional parts, each of which has the same sign as the argument. It stores the integral part as a double for the modf() function, a float for the modff() function, or a long double for themodfl() function in the object pointed to by iptr. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, these functions return the signed fractional part of x. If x is NaN, a NaN is returned and *iptr is set to NaN. If x is +-Inf, +-0 is returned and *iptr is set to +-Inf. ERRORS
No errors are defined. USAGE
These functions compute the function result and *iptr such that: a = modf(x, &iptr) ; x == a+*iptr ; ATTRIBUTES
