significand, significandf, significandl − get mantissa of floating-point number
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():
_SVID_SOURCE || _BSD_SOURCE
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.
For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).
These functions are nonstandard; the double version is available on a number of other systems.
