       scalbn,	scalbnf, scalbnl, scalbln, scalblnf, scalblnl - multiply floating-point number by
       integral power of radix

       #include <math.h>

       double scalbln(double x, long int exp);
       float scalblnf(float x, long int exp);
       long double scalblnl(long double x, long int exp);

       double scalbn(double x, int exp);
       float scalbnf(float x, int exp);
       long double scalbnl(long double x, int exp);

       Link with -lm.

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       scalbln(), scalblnf(), scalblnl():
	      _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	      or cc -std=c99
       scalbn(), scalbnf(), scalbnl():
	      _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	      or cc -std=c99

       These  functions multiply their first argument x by FLT_RADIX (probably 2) to the power of
       exp, that is:

	   x * FLT_RADIX ** exp

       The definition of FLT_RADIX can be obtained by including <float.h>.

       On success, these functions return x * FLT_RADIX ** exp.

       If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

       If x is positive infinity (negative infinity), positive infinity  (negative  infinity)  is

       If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.

       If  the	result	overflows,  a  range  error  occurs,  and  the functions return HUGE_VAL,
       HUGE_VALF, or HUGE_VALL, respectively, with a sign the same as x.

       If the result underflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return zero, with a sign
       the same as x.

       See  math_error(7)  for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when
       calling these functions.

       The following errors can occur:

       Range error, overflow
	      An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.

       Range error, underflow
	      An underflow floating-point exception (FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised.

       These functions do not set errno.

       These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

   Multithreading (see pthreads(7))
       The scalbn(), scalbnf(), scalbnl(), scalbln(), scalblnf(), and  scalblnl()  functions  are

       C99, POSIX.1-2001.

       These  functions  differ  from the obsolete functions described in scalb(3) in the type of
       their second argument.  The functions described on this page have a second argument of  an
       integral type, while those in scalb(3) have a second argument of type double.

       If FLT_RADIX equals 2 (which is usual), then scalbn() is equivalent to ldexp(3).

       ldexp(3), scalb(3)
