**NAME**

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

**DESCRIPTION**

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

**RETURN** **VALUE**

On success, these functions return the exponent ofx, as a signed integer. Ifxis zero, then a domain error occurs, and the functions returnFP_ILOGB0. Ifxis a NaN, then a domain error occurs, and the functions returnFP_ILOGBNAN. Ifxis negative infinity or positive infinity, then a domain error occurs, and the functions returnINT_MAX.

**ERRORS**

Seemath_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions. The following errors can occur: Domain error:xis 0 or a NaN An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised, anderrnois set toEDOM(but see BUGS). Domain error:xis an infinity An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised, anderrnois set toEDOM(but see BUGS).

**BUGS**

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