Before looking for ways to do this, maybe you should consider why you want to do it in the first place. Bitwise operations not working on floating-point isn't much of an issue because most of the time it's nonsensical.

i usually get good replies from narue

by a^b i mean 'a raised to b' (bth power of a). not bitwise operations.

Where you got the idea ^ means raised to the power in C is a great question.

Belaying that, look in the math.h header for the function pow()
