NAME
       cproj, cprojf, cprojl - project into Riemann Sphere

SYNOPSIS
       #include <complex.h>

       double complex cproj(double complex z);
       float complex cprojf(float complex z);
       long double complex cprojl(long double complex z);

       Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION
       These functions project a point in the plane onto the surface of a Rie-
       mann Sphere, the one-point compactification of the complex plane.  Each
       finite  point  z projects to z itself.  Every complex infinite value is
       projected to a single infinite value, namely to  positive  infinity  on
       the real axis.

VERSIONS
       These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

NOTES
       In glibc 2.11 and earlier, the implementation does something  different
       (a stereographic projection onto a Riemann Sphere).
