9.178 MAXEXPONENT — Maximum exponent of a real kind

Description:
MAXEXPONENT(X) returns the maximum exponent in the model of the type of X.
Standard:
Fortran 95 and later
Class:
Inquiry function
Syntax:
RESULT = MAXEXPONENT(X)
Arguments:

X Shall be of type REAL.

Return value:
The return value is of type INTEGER and of the default integer kind.
Example:
          program exponents
            real(kind=4) :: x
            real(kind=8) :: y
          
            print *, minexponent(x), maxexponent(x)
            print *, minexponent(y), maxexponent(y)
          end program exponents
