NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for scalbf (netbsd section 3)

IEEE_TEST(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		     IEEE_TEST(3)

NAME
     logb, logbf, logbl, scalb, scalbf, significand, significandf -- IEEE test functions

LIBRARY
     Math Library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <math.h>

     double
     logb(double x);

     float
     logbf(float x);

     long double
     logbl(long double x);

     double
     scalb(double x, double n);

     float
     scalbf(float x, float n);

     double
     significand(double x);

     float
     significandf(float x);

DESCRIPTION
     These functions allow users to test conformance to IEEE Std 754-1985.  Their use is not oth-
     erwise recommended.

     logb(x) returns x's exponent n, a signed integer converted to double-precision float-
     ing-point.  logb(+-infinity) = +infinity; logb(0) = -infinity with a division by zero excep-
     tion.

     scalbn(x, n) returns x*(2**n) computed by exponent manipulation.

     significand(x) returns sig, where x := sig * 2**n with 1 <= sig < 2.  significand(x) is not
     defined when x is 0, +-infinity, or NaN.
