Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

These functions multiply their first argument
FLT_RADIX (probably 2) to the power of
x * FLT_RADIX ** exp
The definition of FLT_RADIX can be obtained by
On success, these functions return
x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
x is positive infinity (negative infinity), positive
infinity (negative infinity) is returned.
x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.
If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and the functions
return HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or
HUGE_VALL, respectively, with a sign the same as
If the result underflows, a range error occurs, and the functions
return zero, with a sign the same as
See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.
The following errors can occur:
An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.
errno is set to ERANGE. An underflow
floating-point exception (FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised.
These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.
These functions differ from the obsolete functions described in
scalb(3) in the type of their second argument. The
functions described on this page have a second argument of an integral
type, while those in scalb(3) have a second argument of
Before glibc 2.20, these functions did not set
