       frexp, ldexp, modf - split into mantissa and exponent

       #include <math.h>

       double frexp(value, eptr)
       double value;
       int *eptr;

       double ldexp(value, exp)
       double value;

       double modf(value, iptr)
       double value, *iptr;

       The  subroutine returns the mantissa of a double value as a double quantity, x, of magnitude less than 1.0 and greater than or equal to 0.5
       (0.5 <= |x| < 1) and stores an integer n such that value = x*2**n indirectly through eptr.

       The returns the quantity value*2**exp.

       The returns the positive fractional part of value and stores the integer part indirectly through iptr.

Return Values
       If would cause overflow, +-HUGE_VAL is returned (according to the sign of value) and errno is set to ERANGE.  If would cause  underflow,  0
       is returned and errno is set to ERANGE.

modf, modff, modfl - decompose floating-point number SYNOPSIS
c99 [ 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
