Defined in header <math.h>


float logbf( float arg ); 
(since C99)  
double logb( double arg ); 
(since C99)  
long double logbl( long double arg ); 
(since C99)  
Extracts the value of the exponent from the floatingpoint argument arg
, and returns it as a floatingpoint value. Formally, the result is the integral part of log
rarg as a signed floatingpoint value, for nonzero arg, where r
is FLT_RADIX. If arg
is subnormal, it is treated as though it was normalized.

Parameters
arg    floating point value 
Return value
The floatingpoint exponent.
Domain or range error may occur if arg
is zero.
Notes
The value of the exponent returned by logb is always 1 less than the exponent retuned by frexp because of the different normalization requirements: for the exponent e
returned by logb, arg*re
 is between 1 and r
(typically between 1 and 2), but for the exponent e
returned by frexp, arg*2e
 is between 0.5 and 1.
