   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), scalb(3)
