compound(3M) compound(3M)[top]NAMEcompound(), compoundf(), compoundl(), compoundw(), compoundq() - com‐ pound interest factorSYNOPSISDESCRIPTIONThe function computes the compound interest factor: (1 + rate) ** periods is a version of it takes arguments and returns a result. is a version of it takes arguments and returns a result. is an version of it takes arguments and returns an result. is equivalent to on HP-UX systems.USAGETo use these functions, compile either with the default option or with the and options. To use or compile also with the option. Make sure your program includes Link in the math library by specifying on the compiler or linker com‐ mand line.RETURN VALUEIf periods equals zero, returns 1.0. Else, if either argument is a NaN, returns a NaN. Else, if rate is less than, returns a NaN and raises the invalid exception. Else, if rate equals-1, is equivalent to Else, if rate equals +INFINITY, is equivalent to Else, if periods is infinite and rate equals zero, returns 1.0. Else, if periods is infinite and rate does not equal zero, is equiva‐ lent to returns a properly signed infinity in lieu of a value whose magnitude is too large, and raises the overflow and inexact exceptions. raises the underflow and inexact exceptions whenever a result is tiny (essentially denormal or zero) and thereby suffers loss of accuracy, and may raise those exceptions if the result is merely tiny.-1ERRORSNo errors are defined.SEE ALSOannuity(3M), exp(3M), expm1(3M), pow(3M), math(5).STANDARDS CONFORMANCEThese functions are not specified by any standard.
