NAME
clog, clogf, clogl  natural logarithm of a complex number
SYNOPSIS
#include <complex.h>
double complex clog(double complex z);
float complex clogf(float complex z);
long double complex clogl(long double complex z);
Link with lm.
DESCRIPTION
The logarithm clog is the inverse function of the exponential cexp.
Thus, if y = clog(z), then z = cexp(y).
The imaginary part of y is chosen in the interval [pi,pi].
One has clog(z) = log(cabs(z))+I*carg(z).
Please note that z close to zero will cause an overflow.
