SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double log1p(double x);
       float log1pf(float x);
       long double log1pl(long double x);

DESCRIPTION
       log1p(x) returns a value equivalent to

           log (1 + x)

       It is computed in a way that is accurate even if the value of x is near
       zero.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, these functions return the natural logarithm of (1 + x).

       If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

       If x is positive infinity, positive infinity is returned.

       If  x  is  -1, a pole error occurs, and the functions return -HUGE_VAL,
       -HUGE_VALF, or -HUGE_VALL, respectively.

       If x is less than -1 (including  negative  infinity),  a  domain  error
       occurs, and a NaN (not a number) is returned.

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:

       Domain error: x is less than -1
              An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.

       Pole error: x is -1
              A  divide-by-zero  floating-point  exception  (FE_DIVBYZERO)  is
