expm1l


SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double expm1(double x);
       float expm1f(float x);
       long double expm1l(long double x);

       Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION
       expm1(x) returns a value equivalent to

           exp(x) - 1

       It is computed in a way that is accurate even if the value of x is near
       zero--a case where exp(x) - 1 would be inaccurate due to subtraction of
       two numbers that are nearly equal.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, these functions return exp(x) - 1.

       If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

       If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.

       If x is positive infinity, positive infinity is returned.

       If x is negative infinity, -1 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 (but see BUGS).   An  overflow  floating-
              point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.

       Before version 2.11, the glibc implementation  did  not  set  errno  to
       ERANGE when a range error occurred.
