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.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
- errno is set to ERANGE (but see BUGS). An overflow floating-point exception ( FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.
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.SEE ALSO
