EXP(3)                     Linux Programmer's Manual                    EXP(3)

NAME
       exp, expf, expl - base-e exponential function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double exp(double x);
       float expf(float x);
       long double expl(long double x);

       Link with -lm.

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       expf(), expl():
           _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
               || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
               || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION
       These  functions return the value of e (the base of natural logarithms)
       raised to the power of x.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, these functions return the exponential value of x.

       If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

       If x is positive infinity, positive infinity is returned.

       If x is negative infinity, +0 is returned.

       If the result underflows, a range error occurs, and zero is returned.

       If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return
       +HUGE_VAL, +HUGE_VALF, or +HUGE_VALL, respectively.

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, overflow
              errno is set to ERANGE.  An  overflow  floating-point  exception
              (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.

       Range error, underflow
              errno  is  set to ERANGE.  An underflow floating-point exception
              (FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised.

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

       The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
