# NAME¶

std::ilogb,std::ilogbf,std::ilogbl - std::ilogb,std::ilogbf,std::ilogbl

# Synopsis¶

Defined in header <cmath>

int ilogb ( float num );

*(since C++11)*

int ilogb ( double num ); (until C++23)

int ilogb ( long double num );

constexpr int ilogb( /* floating-point-type */ num (since C++23)

);

int ilogbf( float num ); **(2)** *(since C++11)*

**(1)** (constexpr since C++23)

int ilogbl( long double num ); **(3)** *(since C++11)*

(constexpr since C++23)

#define FP_ILOGB0 /* implementation-defined */ **(4)** *(since
C++11)*

#define FP_ILOGBNAN /* implementation-defined */ **(5)** *(since
C++11)*

Additional overloads

Defined in header <cmath>

template< class Integer > (A) *(since C++11)*

int ilogb ( Integer num ); (constexpr since C++23)

1-3) Extracts the value of the unbiased exponent from the floating-point
argument

num, and returns it as a signed integer value.

The library provides overloads of std::ilogb for all cv-unqualified
floating-point

types as the type of the parameter num.

(since C++23)

4) Expands to integer constant expression whose value is either INT_MIN or
-INT_MAX.

5) Expands to integer constant expression whose value is either INT_MIN or
+INT_MAX.

A) Additional overloads are provided for all integer types, which are treated
as

double.

Formally, the unbiased exponent is the integral part of log

r|num| as a signed integral value, for non-zero num, where r is

std::numeric_limits<T>::radix and T is the floating-point type of
num.

# Parameters¶

num - floating-point or integer value

# Return value¶

If no errors occur, the unbiased exponent of num is returned as a signed int value.

If num is zero, FP_ILOGB0 is returned.

If num is infinite, INT_MAX is returned.

If num is a NaN, FP_ILOGBNAN is returned.

If the correct result is greater than INT_MAX or smaller than INT_MIN, the
return

value is unspecified.

# Error handling¶

Errors are reported as specified in math_errhandling.

A domain error or range error may occur if num is zero, infinite, or NaN.

If the correct result is greater than INT_MAX or smaller than INT_MIN, a
domain

error or a range error may occur.

If the implementation supports IEEE floating-point arithmetic (IEC
60559),

* If the correct result is greater than INT_MAX or smaller than INT_MIN,

FE_INVALID is raised.

* If num is ±0, ±∞, or NaN, FE_INVALID is raised.

* In all other cases, the result is exact (FE_INEXACT is never raised) and
the

current rounding mode is ignored.

# Notes¶

If num is not zero, infinite, or NaN, the value returned is
exactly equivalent to

static_cast<int>(std::logb(num)).

POSIX requires that a domain error occurs if num is zero, infinite, NaN, or
if the

correct result is outside of the range of int.

POSIX also requires that, on XSI-conformant systems, the value returned when
the

correct result is greater than INT_MAX is INT_MAX and the value returned when
the

correct result is less than INT_MIN is INT_MIN.

The correct result can be represented as int on all known implementations.
For

overflow to occur, INT_MAX must be less than LDBL_MAX_EXP *
std::log2(FLT_RADIX) or

INT_MIN must be greater than LDBL_MIN_EXP - LDBL_MANT_DIG) *
std::log2(FLT_RADIX).

The value of the exponent returned by std::ilogb is always 1 less than the
exponent

retuned by std::frexp because of the different normalization requirements:
for the

exponent e returned by std::ilogb, |num*r-e

| is between 1 and r (typically between 1 and 2), but for the exponent e
returned by

std::frexp, |num*2-e

| is between 0.5 and 1.

The additional overloads are not required to be provided exactly as (A). They
only

need to be sufficient to ensure that for their argument num of integer type,

std::ilogb(num) has the same effect as
std::ilogb(static_cast<double>(num)).

# Example¶

Compares different floating-point decomposition functions:

// Run this code

#include <cfenv>

#include <cmath>

#include <iostream>

#include <limits>

// #pragma STDC FENV_ACCESS ON

int main()

{

double f = 123.45;

std::cout << "Given the number " << f << "
or " << std::hexfloat

<< f << std::defaultfloat << " in hex,\n";

double f3;

double f2 = std::modf(f, &f3);

std::cout << "modf() makes " << f3 << " +
" << f2 << '\n';

int i;

f2 = std::frexp(f, &i);

std::cout << "frexp() makes " << f2 << " *
2^" << i << '\n';

i = std::ilogb(f);

std::cout << "logb()/ilogb() make " << f /
std::scalbn(1.0, i) << " * "

<< std::numeric_limits<double>::radix

<< "^" << std::ilogb(f) << '\n';

// error handling

std::feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT);

std::cout << "ilogb(0) = " << std::ilogb(0) <<
'\n';

if (std::fetestexcept(FE_INVALID))

std::cout << " FE_INVALID raised\n";

}

# Possible output:¶

Given the number 123.45 or 0x1.edccccccccccdp+6 in hex,

modf() makes 123 + 0.45

frexp() makes 0.964453 * 2^7

logb()/ilogb() make 1.92891 * 2^6

ilogb**(0)** = -2147483648

FE_INVALID raised
