NAME¶logb, logbf, logbl - get exponent of a floating-point value
double logb(double x);
float logbf(float x);
long double logbl(long double x);
Link with -lm.
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
DESCRIPTION¶These functions extract the exponent from the internal floating-point representation of x and return it as a floating-point value. The integer constant FLT_RADIX, defined in <float.h>, indicates the radix used for the system's floating-point representation. If FLT_RADIX is 2, logb(x) is equal to floor(log2(x)), except that it is probably faster.
If x is subnormal, logb() returns the exponent x would have if it were normalized.
RETURN VALUE¶On success, these functions return the exponent of x.
If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If x is zero, then a pole error occurs, and the functions return -HUGE_VAL, -HUGE_VALF, or -HUGE_VALL, respectively.
If x is negative infinity or positive infinity, then positive infinity is returned.
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:
- Pole error: x is 0
- A divide-by-zero floating-point exception (FE_DIVBYZERO) is raised.
These functions do not set errno.
