DESCRIPTION
These functions return the exponent part of their argument as a signed integer. When no error occurs, these functions are equivalent to the corresponding logb(3) functions, cast to int.RETURN VALUE
On success, these functions return the exponent of x, as a signed integer.If x is zero, then a domain error occurs, and the functions return FP_ILOGB0.
If x is a NaN, then a domain error occurs, and the functions return FP_ILOGBNAN.
If x is negative infinity or positive infinity, then a domain error occurs, and the functions return INT_MAX.
ERRORS
See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.The following errors can occur:
 Domain error: x is 0 or a NaN
 An invalid floatingpoint exception (FE_INVALID) is raised, and errno is set to EDOM (but see BUGS).
 Domain error: x is an infinity
 An invalid floatingpoint exception (FE_INVALID) is raised, and errno is set to EDOM (but see BUGS).

CONFORMING TO
C99, POSIX.12001, POSIX.12008.BUGS
Before version 2.16, the following bugs existed in the glibc implementation of these functions: *
 The domain error case where x is 0 or a NaN did not cause errno to be set or (on some architectures) raise a floatingpoint exception.
 *
 The domain error case where x is an infinity did not cause errno to be set or raise a floatingpoint exception.
