## 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***);**

*−lm*.

_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 ||
_XOPEN_SOURCE && _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED ||
_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;

**ilogbl**():

_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;

or *cc -std=c99*

## 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.

These functions
do not set *errno* for this case.

Domain error: *x* is an
infinity

These functions
do not set *errno* or raise an exception for this
case.
