These functions extract the exponent from the internal floating-point
x and return it as a floating-point value.
The integer constant FLT_RADIX, defined in
<float.h>, indicates the radix used for the system's
floating-point representation. If FLT_RADIX is 2,
x) is equal to
x)), except that
it is probably faster.
x is subnormal, logb() returns the
x would have if it were normalized.
On success, these functions return the exponent of
x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
x is zero, then a pole error occurs, and the functions
return -HUGE_VAL, -HUGE_VALF, or
x is negative infinity or positive infinity, then
positive infinity is returned.
See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.
The following errors can occur:
A divide-by-zero floating-point exception (FE_DIVBYZERO) is raised.
These functions do not set
