### NAME[Toc][Back]

```     MINEXPONENT - Returns the minimum (most negative) exponent	of a real
number in the numeric model
```

### SYNOPSIS[Toc][Back]

```     MINEXPONENT ([X=]x)
```

### IMPLEMENTATION[Toc][Back]

```     UNICOS, UNICOS/mk,	and IRIX systems
```

### STANDARDS[Toc][Back]

```     Fortran 90
```

### DESCRIPTION[Toc][Back]

```     The MINEXPONENT intrinsic function	returns	the minimum (most negative)
exponent of a real	number in the numeric model representing numbers of
the same type and kind type parameter as the argument.  The real
number model is defined in	the MODELS(3I) man page.  It accepts the
following argument:

x	  Must be of type real.	 It can	be scalar or array valued.

MINEXPONENT is an inquiry function.  The name of this intrinsic cannot
be	passed as an argument.
```

### RETURN VALUES[Toc][Back]

```     The result	is a default integer scalar.  The result has the value e
min
as	defined	in the model, which represents numbers of the same type	and
kind type parameter as x.
```

### EXAMPLES[Toc][Back]

```     On	UNICOS systems,	except for CRAY	T90 systems that support IEEE
floating-point arithmetic,	MINEXPONENT(X) has the value -8188 for real
X.

On	IRIX systems, MINEXPONENT(X) has the following values:

* -125 for	real (KIND=4) X

* -1021 for real (KIND=8) X

* -967 for	real (KIND=16) X

On	CRAY T90 systems that support IEEE floating-point arithmetic,
MINEXPONENT(X) has	the following values:

* -125 for	real (KIND=4) X

* -1021 for real (KIND=8) X

* -16381 for real (KIND=16) X

On	UNICOS/mk systems, MINEXPONENT(X) has the following values:

* -125 for	real (KIND=4) X

* -1021 for real (KIND=8) X
```
