Section: Linux Programmer's Manual (3)
Updated: 2015-03-02

NAME

ldexp, ldexpf, ldexpl - multiply floating-point number by integral 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.

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

ldexpf(), ldexpl():

_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99
 

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 (negative 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.
