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 otherwise recommended. logb(x) returns x's exponent n, a signed integer converted to double-precision floating-point. logb(+-infinity) = +infinity; logb(0) = -infinity with a division by zero exception. 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.

ilogb, ilogbf, ilogbl, logb, logbf, logbl -- extract exponent LIBRARY
Math Library (libm, -lm) SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> int ilogb(double x); int ilogbf(float x); int ilogbl(long double x); double logb(double x); float logbf(float x); long double logbl(long double x); DESCRIPTION
ilogb(), ilogbf() and ilogbl() return x's exponent in integer format. ilogb(+-infinity) returns INT_MAX, ilogb(+-NaN) returns FP_ILOGBNAN, and ilogb(0) returns FP_ILOGB0. logb(x), logbf(x), and logbl(x) return x's exponent in floating-point format with the same precision as x. logb(+-infinity) returns +infin- ity, and logb(0) returns -infinity with a division by zero exception. SEE ALSO

The ilogb(), ilogbf(), ilogbl(), logb(), logbf(), and logbl() routines conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99''). The latter three imple- ment the logb function recommended by IEEE Std 754-1985. HISTORY
