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.  

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.  

CONFORMING TO

BSD, C99. The float and long double variants are C99 requirements.
