DESCRIPTION
       These  functions  calculate  the complex natural logarithm of z, with a
       branch cut along the negative real axis.

       The logarithm  clog()  is  the  inverse  function  of  the  exponential
       cexp(3).   Thus,  if y = clog(z), then z = cexp(y).  The imaginary part
       of y is chosen in the interval [-pi,pi].

       One has:

           clog(z) = log(cabs(z)) + I * carg(z)

       Note that z close to zero will cause an overflow.

VERSIONS
       These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
