ilogb, ilogbf, ilogbl -- an unbiased exponent
Math Library (libm, -lm)
ilogbl(long double x);
The ilogb(), ilogbf(), and ilogbl() functions return the exponent of the
non-zero real floating-point number x as a signed integer value. For-
mally the return value is the integral part of
log_r | x |,
where r is the radix of the machine's floating-point arithmetic defined
by the FLT_RADIX constant in <float.h>.
As described above, upon successful completion, the functions return the
exponent. Functionally this is the same as calling the corresponding
logb(3) function and casting the return value to int.
The following special cases may occur:
1. If x is zero, the value of FP_ILOGB0 is returned and a domain
2. If x is infinite, a domain error occurs and the value of
INT_MAX is returned.
3. If x is NaN, a domain error is raised and the value of
FP_ILOGBNAN is returned.
4. If the correct value is outside the range of the return type,
a domain error occurs but an unspecified value is returned.

The described functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99'').
