DESCRIPTION
       These  functions return the complementary error function of x, that is,
       1.0 - erf(x).

RETURN VALUE
       On success, these functions return the complementary error function  of
       x, a value in the range [0,2].

       If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

       If x is +0 or -0, 1 is returned.

       If x is positive infinity, +0 is returned.

       If x is negative infinity, +2 is returned.

       If  the  function  result  underflows  and  produces an unrepresentable
       value, the return value is 0.0.

       If the function result underflows but produces a  representable  (i.e.,
       subnormal) value, that value is returned, and a range error occurs.

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 (result is subnormal)
              An underflow floating-point exception (FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised.

       These functions do not set errno.

ATTRIBUTES
       For  an  explanation  of  the  terms  used   in   this   section,   see

NOTES
       The  erfc(),  erfcf(),  and erfcl() functions are provided to avoid the
       loss accuracy that would occur for the calculation 1-erf(x)  for  large
       values of x (for which the value of erf(x) approaches 1).
