scalbn, scalbnf, scalbnl, scalbln, scalblnf, scalblnl - multiply floating-point number by integral power of radix
#include <math.h> double scalbln(double x, long int exp); float scalblnf(float x, long int exp); long double scalblnl(long double x, long int exp); double scalbn(double x, int exp); float scalbnf(float x, int exp); long double scalbnl(long double x, int exp); Link with -lm. Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): scalbln(), scalblnf(), scalblnl(): _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE scalbn(), scalbnf(), scalbnl(): _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE
These functions multiply their first argument x by FLT_RADIX (probably 2) to the power of exp, that is: x * FLT_RADIX ** exp The definition of FLT_RADIX can be obtained by including <float.h>.
On success, these functions return x * FLT_RADIX ** exp. If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned. If x is positive infinity (negative infinity), positive infinity (negative infinity) is returned. If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) 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. If the result underflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return zero, with a sign the same as x.
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 An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised. Range error, underflow An underflow floating-point exception (FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised. These functions do not set errno.
These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

These functions differ from the obsolete functions described in scalb(3) in the type of their second argument. The functions described on this page have a second argument of an integral type, while those in scalb(3) have a second argument of type double. If FLT_RADIX equals 2 (which is usual), then scalbn() is equivalent to ldexp(3).
