EXP(3) Linux Programmer's Manual EXP(3)NAME
exp, expf, expl - base-e exponential function
double exp(double x);
float expf(float x);
long double expl(long double x);
Link with -lm.

The exp() function returns the value of e (the base of natural loga‐
rithms) raised to the power of x.
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.
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.
C99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4,
