MATH(3) BSD Library Functions Manual MATH(3)[top]NAMEmath— floating-point mathematical libraryLIBRARYMath Library (libm, -lm)SYNOPSIS#include <math.h>DESCRIPTIONThese functions constitute the Cmathlibrary.LIST OF FUNCTIONSEach of the following double functions has a float counterpart with an ‘f’ appended to the name and a long double counterpart with an ‘l’ appended. As an example, the float and long double counterparts of double acos(double x) are float acosf(float x) and long double acosl(long double x), respectively. The classification macros and silent order predicates are type generic and should not be suffixed with ‘f’ or ‘l’.

For more infor‐ mation on controlling the dynamic rounding mode, see fenv(3) and fesetround(3).

For most of these func‐ tions, however, incorrect rounding occurs rarely, and then only in very- close-to-halfway cases.SEE ALSOfenv(3), ieee(3), tgmath(3)HISTORYAmathlibrary with many of the present functions appeared in Version 7 AT&T UNIX. The library was substantially rewritten for 4.3BSD to provide better accuracy and speed on machines supporting either VAX or IEEE 754 floating-point. Most of this library was replaced with FDLIBM, developed at Sun Microsystems, in FreeBSD 1.1.5. Additional routines, including ones for float and long double values, were written for or imported into subsequent versions of FreeBSD.BUGSThe log2() function is missing, and many functions are not available in their long double variants. Many of the routines to compute transcendental functions produce inaccu‐ rate results in other than the default rounding mode. On some architectures, trigonometric argument reduction is not performed accurately, resulting in errors greater than 1 ulp for large arguments to cos(), sin(), and tan().BSDDecember 16, 2007 BSD
