FREXP(3G) [FIXME: manual] FREXP(3G)

frexp - split a floating point number

genType frexp(genType x, out genIType exp);

genDType frexp(genDType x, out genIType exp);

Specifies the value from which significand and exponent are to be extracted.

out exp

Specifies the variable into which to place the exponent

frexp extracts x into a floating-point significand in the range [0.5, 1.0) and in integral exponent of two, such that:

x = significand ⋅ 2 exponent

The significand is returned by the function and the exponent is returned in the output parameter exp. For a floating-point value of zero, the significand and exponent are both zero. For a floating-point value that is an infinity or a floating-point NaN, the results are undefined.
