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

NAME
       erfc, erfcf, erfcl - complementary error function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double erfc(double x);
       float erfcf(float x);
       long double erfcl(long double x);

       Link with -lm.

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

       erfc():
	   _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
	   _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	   or cc -std=c99
       erfcf(), erfcl():
	   _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600||
	   _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	   or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION
       The erfc() function returns the complementary error function of x, that
       is, 1.0 - erf(x).

RETURN VALUE
       On success, these functions return the complementary error function  of
       x, a value in the range [0,2].

       If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

       If x is +0 or -0, 1 is returned.

       If x is positive infinity, +0 is returned.

       If x is negative infinity, +2 is returned.

       If  the	function  result  underflows  and  produces an unrepresentable
       value, the return value is 0.0.

       If the function result underflows but produces a	 representable	(i.e.,
       subnormal) value, that value is returned, and a range error occurs.

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 (result 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.

NOTES
       The erfc() functions are provided to avoid the loss accuracy that would
       occur for the calculation 1-erf(x) for large values of x (for which the
       value of erf(x) approaches 1).
