|LDEXP(3)||Linux Programmer's Manual||LDEXP(3)|
NAME¶ldexp, ldexpf, ldexpl - multiply floating-point number by integral power of 2
double ldexp(double x, int exp); float ldexpf(float x, int exp); long double ldexpl(long double x, int exp);
Link with -lm.
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
DESCRIPTION¶These functions return the result of multiplying the floating-point number x by 2 raised to the power exp.
RETURN VALUE¶On success, these functions return x * (2^exp).
If exp is zero, then x is returned.
If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If x is positive infinity (negative infinity), positive infinity (negative infinity) is returned.
If the result underflows, a range error occurs, and zero is returned.
If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or HUGE_VALL, respectively, with a sign the same as x.
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:
- Range error, overflow
- errno is set to ERANGE. An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.
- Range error, underflow
- errno is set to ERANGE. An underflow floating-point exception (FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised.
