fdlibm-based libm has
#define NMAX 65536
#define NMIN -65536
scalbln(double x, long n)
return (scalbn(x, (n > NMAX) ? NMAX : (n < NMIN) ? NMIN : (int)n));
A search for glibc's libm locates https://tinyurl.com/ybcy8w4t
which is a bit-twiddling routine. Not sure it's worth the
effort. Joseph Myers might have an opinion.
