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);
```

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

log1p():

_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

log1pf(), log1pl():

DESCRIPTION¶

These functions return a value equivalent to

```    log (1 + x)
```

The result 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
errno is set to EDOM (but see BUGS). An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
Pole error: x is -1
errno is set to ERANGE (but see BUGS). A divide-by-zero floating-point exception (FE_DIVBYZERO) is raised.

ATTRIBUTES¶

CONFORMING TO¶

C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

BUGS¶

Before version 2.22, the glibc implementation did not set errno to EDOM when a domain error occurred.

Before version 2.22, the glibc implementation did not set errno to ERANGE when a range error occurred.
