EXPM1(3) Linux Programmer's Manual EXPM1(3) NAME expm1, expm1f, expm1l - exponential minus 1 SYNOPSIS #include <math.h> double expm1(double x); float expm1f(float x); long double expm1l(long double x); Link with -lm. Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): expm1(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 || _ISOC99_SOURCE; or cc -std=c99 expm1f(), expm1l(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE; or cc -std=c99 DESCRIPTION expm1(x) returns a value equivalent to exp(x) - 1 It is computed in a way that is accurate even if the value of x is near zero--a case where exp(x) - 1 would be inaccurate due to subtraction of two numbers that are nearly equal. RETURN VALUE On success, these functions return exp(x) - 1. If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned. If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned. If x is positive infinity, positive infinity is returned. If x is negative infinity, -1 is returned. If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return -HUGE_VAL, -HUGE_VALF, or -HUGE_VALL, respectively. 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: Range error, overflow An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised. These functions do not set errno. CONFORMING TO C99, POSIX.1-2001. BUGS For some large negative x values (where the function result approaches -1), expm1() raises a bogus underflow floating-point exception. For some large positive x values, expm1() raises a bogus invalid float- ing-point exception in addition to the expected overflow exception, and returns a NaN instead of positive infinity.
