ldexpf

       power of 2

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double ldexp(double x, int exp);
       float ldexpf(float x, int exp);
       long double ldexpl(long double x, int exp);

       Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION
       The  ldexp()  function  returns the result of multiplying the floating-
       point number x by 2 raised to the power exp.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, these functions return x * (2^exp).

       If exp is zero, then x is returned.

       If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

       If x is positive infinity (negative infinity), positive infinity (nega-
       tive infinity) is returned.

       If the result underflows, a range error occurs, and zero 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 x.

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:

       Range error, overflow
              errno is set to ERANGE.  An  overflow  floating-point  exception
              (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.

       Range error, underflow
              errno  is  set to ERANGE.  An underflow floating-point exception
              (FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised.

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001.  The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4,
