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.
