ilogb, ilogbf, ilogbl - return an unbiased exponent

#include <math.h>

int ilogb(doublex);

int ilogbf(floatx);

int ilogbl(long doublex);

^{[CX]}The functionality described on this reference page is aligned with the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the requirements described here and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This volume of IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 defers to the ISO C standard.These functions shall return the exponent part of their argument

x. Formally, the return value is the integral part of log_{r}|x| as a signed integral value, for non-zerox, whereris the radix of the machine's floating-point arithmetic, which is the value of FLT_RADIX defined in<float.h>.An application wishing to check for error situations should set

errnoto zero and callfeclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling these functions. On return, iferrnois non-zero orfetestexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_DIVBYZERO | FE_OVERFLOW | FE_UNDERFLOW) is non-zero, an error has occurred.

Upon successful completion, these functions shall return the exponent part of

xas a signed integer value. They are equivalent to calling the correspondinglogb() function and casting the returned value to typeint.If

xis 0,^{[XSI]}a domain error shall occur, and the value FP_ILOGB0 shall be returned.If

xis ±Inf,^{[XSI]}a domain error shall occur, and the value {INT_MAX} shall be returned.If

xis a NaN,^{[XSI]}a domain error shall occur, and the value FP_ILOGBNAN shall be returned.

^{[XSI]}If the correct value is greater than {INT_MAX}, {INT_MAX} shall be returned and a domain error shall occur.If the correct value is less than {INT_MIN}, {INT_MIN} shall be returned and a domain error shall occur.

These functions shall fail if:

- Domain Error
^{[XSI]}Thexargument is zero, NaN, or ±Inf, or the correct value is not representable as an integer.If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is non-zero, then

errnoshall be set to [EDOM]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, then the invalid floating-point exception shall be raised.

None.

On error, the expressions (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) and (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) are independent of each other, but at least one of them must be non-zero.

The errors come from taking the expected floating-point value and converting it to

int, which is an invalid operation in IEEE Std 754-1985 (since overflow, infinity, and NaN are not representable in a typeint), so should be a domain error.There are no known implementations that overflow. For overflow to happen, {INT_MAX} must be less than LDBL_MAX_EXP*

log2(FLT_RADIX) or {INT_MIN} must be greater than LDBL_MIN_EXP*log2(FLT_RADIX) if subnormals are not supported, or {INT_MIN} must be greater than (LDBL_MIN_EXP-LDBL_MANT_DIG)*log2(FLT_RADIX) if subnormals are supported.

None.

Moved from X/OPEN UNIX extension to BASE.

The

ilogb() function is no longer marked as an extension.The

ilogbf() andilogbl() functions are added for alignment with the ISO/IEC 9899:1999 standard.The RETURN VALUE section is revised for alignment with the ISO/IEC 9899:1999 standard.

XSI extensions are marked.
