**erf**

SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>
double erf(double x);
float erff(float x);
long double erfl(long double x);
Link with -lm.
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see **feature_test_macros(7)**):
erf():
_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99
erff(), erfl():
_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 ||
_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99
DESCRIPTION
The erf() function returns the error function of x, defined as
erf(x) = 2/sqrt(pi)* integral from 0 to x of exp(-t*t) dt
RETURN VALUE
On success, these functions return the error function of x, a value in
the range [-1, 1].
If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.
If x is positive infinity (negative infinity), +1 (-1) is returned.
If x is subnormal, a range error occurs, and the return value is
2*x/sqrt(pi).
ERRORS
See **math_error(7)** for information on how to determine whether an error
has occurred when calling these functions.
The following errors can occur:
Range error: result underflow (x is subnormal)
An underflow floating-point exception (FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised.
These functions do not set errno.
CONFORMING TO
C99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4,
4.3BSD.
