NAME
       significand, significandf, significandl - get mantissa of floating-point number

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double significand(double x);
       float significandf(float x);
       long double significandl(long double x);

       Link with -lm.

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

       significand(), significandf(), significandl():
	   _SVID_SOURCE || _BSD_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION
       The  significand()  function  returns  the mantissa of x scaled to the range [1,2).  It is
       equivalent to

	   scalb(x, (double) -ilogb(x))

       This function exists mainly for use in certain standardized tests  for  IEEE  754  confor-
       mance.

CONFORMING TO
       These functions are nonstandard; the double version is available on a number of other sys-
       tems.
