DESCRIPTION
log1p(x) returns a value equivalent to
log (1 + x)
It 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).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
- An invalid floating-point exception ( FE_INVALID) is raised.
- Pole error: x is -1
- A divide-by-zero floating-point exception ( FE_DIVBYZERO) is raised.
These functions do not set errno.
