LOG1P(3)		   Linux Programmer's Manual		      LOG1P(3)

NAME
       log1p, log1pf, log1pl -	logarithm of 1 plus argument

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

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

       Link with -lm.

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

       log1p():
	   _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 ||
	   _XOPEN_SOURCE && _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
	   _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	   or cc -std=c99
       log1pf(), log1pl():
	   _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 ||
	   _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	   or cc -std=c99

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
	      raised.

       These functions do not set errno.

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001.
