LOG2(3) 						     Linux Programmer's Manual							   LOG2(3)

NAME
log2, log2f, log2l - base-2 logarithmic function SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> double log2(double x); float log2f(float x); long double log2l(long double x); Link with -lm. Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): log2(), log2f(), log2l(): _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L; or cc -std=c99 DESCRIPTION
The log2() function returns the base 2 logarithm of x. RETURN VALUE
On success, these functions return the base 2 logarithm of x. For special cases, including where x is 0, 1, negative, infinity, or NaN, see log(3). ERRORS
See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions. For a discussion of the errors that can occur for these functions, see log(3). VERSIONS
These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1. CONFORMING TO
C99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD. SEE ALSO
cbrt(3), clog2(3), log(3), log10(3), sqrt(3) COLOPHON

taking the Log2 values

Hi, I am able to take the log value for the third column of a file using the script below. But I want to take the log2 (not the log). How would I write that? thanks awk 'BEGIN {OFS="\t"} {print $1, $2, log ($3)}' (2 Replies)
