NAME         top

       significand,  significandf,  significandl - get mantissa of floating-
       point number

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <math.h>

       double significand(double x);
       float significandf(float x);
       long double significandl(long double x);

       Link with -lm.

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

       significand(), significandf(), significandl():
           /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
               || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION         top

       These functions return the mantissa of x scaled to the range [1,2).
       They are equivalent to

           scalb(x, (double) -ilogb(x))

       This function exists mainly for use in certain standardized tests for
       IEEE 754 conformance.
