NAME

frexp, frexpf, frexpl – convert floating-point number to fractional and integral components

CONTENTS

LIBRARY

Math Library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>

double
frexp(double value, int *exp);

float
frexpf(float value, int *exp);

long double
frexpl(long double value, int *exp);

DESCRIPTION

The frexp(), frexpf() and frexpl() functions break a floating-point number into a normalized fraction and an integral power of 2. They store the integer in the int object pointed to by exp.

RETURN VALUES

These functions return the value x, such that x is a double with magnitude in the interval [ 1/2, 1 ) or zero, and value equals x times 2 raised to the power *exp. If value is zero, both parts of the result are zero.

SEE ALSO

ldexp(3), math(3), modf(3)

STANDARDS

The frexp(), frexpf(), and frexpl() functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 ("ISO C99").

A typical Unix /bin or /usr/bin directory contains a hundred different kinds of programs, written by dozens of egotistical programmers, each with its own syntax, operating paradigm, rules of use ... strategies for specifying options, and different sets of constraints.
