log1p(3) Library Functions Manual log1p(3)
NAME
log1p, log1pf, log1pl - logarithm of 1 plus argument
LIBRARY
Math library (libm, -lm)
SYNOPSIS
#include
double log1p(double x);
float log1pf(float x);
long double log1pl(long double x);

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.

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