SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double logb(double x);
       float logbf(float x);
       long double logbl(long double x);

       Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION
       These functions extract the exponent from the  internal  floating-point
       representation of x and return it as a floating-point value.  The inte-
       ger constant FLT_RADIX, defined in <float.h>, indicates the radix  used
       for  the  system's  floating-point  representation.  If FLT_RADIX is 2,
       logb(x) is equal to floor(log2(x)), except that it is probably faster.

       If x is subnormal, logb() returns the exponent x would have if it  were
       normalized.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, these functions return the exponent of x.

       If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

       If  x  is  zero,  then  a  pole  error occurs, and the functions return
       -HUGE_VAL, -HUGE_VALF, or -HUGE_VALL, respectively.

       If x is negative infinity or positive infinity, then positive  infinity
       is returned.

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:

       Pole error: x is 0
              A  divide-by-zero  floating-point  exception  (FE_DIVBYZERO)  is
              raised.

       These functions do not set errno.
