NAME

ilogb, ilogbf, ilogbl - get integer exponent of a floating-point value  

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>

int ilogb(double x);
int ilogbf(float x);
int ilogbl(long double x);

Link with -lm.

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

ilogb():

_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
    || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500
    || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
    || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

ilogbf(), ilogbl():
_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
    || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
    || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE
 

DESCRIPTION

These functions return the exponent part of their argument as a signed integer. When no error occurs, these functions are equivalent to the corresponding logb(3) functions, cast to int.  

RETURN VALUE

On success, these functions return the exponent of x, as a signed integer.

If xis zero, then a domain error occurs, and the functions return FP_ILOGB0.

If xis a NaN, then a domain error occurs, and the functions return FP_ILOGBNAN.

If xis negative infinity or positive infinity, then a domain error occurs, and the functions return INT_MAX.  

ERRORS

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

The following errors can occur:

Domain error: x is 0 or a NaN
An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised, and errnois set to EDOM(but see BUGS).
Domain error: x is an infinity
An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised, and errnois set to EDOM(but see BUGS).

CONFORMING TO

C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.  

BUGS

Before version 2.16, the following bugs existed in the glibc implementation of these functions:
*
The domain error case where xis 0 or a NaN did not cause errnoto be set or (on some architectures) raise a floating-point exception.
*
The domain error case where xis an infinity did not cause errnoto be set or raise a floating-point exception.
