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.

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 x is zero, then a domain error occurs, and the functions return FP_ILOGB0.

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

       If  x  is  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 errno is set to
              EDOM (but see BUGS).

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

BUGS

       Before  version  2.16,  the  following  bugs  existed in the glibc implementation of these
       functions:

       *  The domain error case where x is 0 or a NaN did not cause errno to be set or  (on  some
          architectures) raise a floating-point exception.

       *  The  domain  error case where x is an infinity did not cause errno to be set or raise a
          floating-point exception.
