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

This function exists mainly for use in certain standardized tests for IEEE 754 conformance.
ATTRIBUTESFor an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).
