If exp is zero, then x is returned.
If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If x is positive infinity (negative infinity), positive infinity (negative infinity) is returned.
If the result underflows, a range error occurs, and zero is returned.
If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or HUGE_VALL, respectively, with a sign the same as x.
The following errors can occur:
- Range error, overflow
- errno is set to ERANGE. An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.
- Range error, underflow
- errno is set to ERANGE. An underflow floating-point exception (FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised.

The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
