log10, log10f, log10l - base 10 logarithm function SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> double log10(double x); float log10f(float x); long double log10l(long double x); DESCRIPTION
These functions shall compute the base 10 logarithm of their argument x, log_10(x). An application wishing to check for error situations should set errno to zero and call feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling these functions. On return, if errno is non-zero or fetestexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_DIVBYZERO | FE_OVERFLOW | FE_UNDERFLOW) is non-zero, an error has occurred. RETURN VALUE
Upon successful completion, these functions shall return the base 10 logarithm of x. If x is +-0, a pole error shall occur and log10(), log10f(), and log10l() shall return -HUGE_VAL, -HUGE_VALF, and -HUGE_VALL, respectively. For finite values of x that are less than 0, or if x is -Inf, a domain error shall occur, and either a NaN (if supported), or an imple- mentation-defined value shall be returned. If x is NaN, a NaN shall be returned. If x is 1, +0 shall be returned. If x is +Inf, +Inf shall be returned. ERRORS
These functions shall fail if: Domain Error The finite value of x is negative, or x is -Inf. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is non-zero, then errno shall be set to [EDOM]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, then the invalid floating-point exception shall be raised. Pole Error The value of x is zero. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is non-zero, then errno shall be set to [ERANGE]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, then the divide-by-zero floating-point exception shall be raised. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
None. APPLICATION USAGE
On error, the expressions (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) and (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) are independent of each other, but at least one of them must be non-zero. RATIONALE
None. FUTURE DIRECTIONS
None. SEE ALSO

NAME
log, logf, logl - natural logarithm function SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> double log(double x); float logf(float x); long double logl(long double x); DESCRIPTION
These functions shall compute the natural logarithm of their argument x, log_e(x). An application wishing to check for error situations should set errno to zero and call feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling these functions. On return, if errno is non-zero or fetestexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_DIVBYZERO | FE_OVERFLOW | FE_UNDERFLOW) is non-zero, an error has occurred. RETURN VALUE
Upon successful completion, these functions shall return the natural logarithm of x. If x is +-0, a pole error shall occur and log(), logf(), and logl() shall return -HUGE_VAL, -HUGE_VALF, and -HUGE_VALL, respectively. For finite values of x that are less than 0, or if x is -Inf, a domain error shall occur, and either a NaN (if supported), or an implementation-defined value shall be returned. If x is NaN, a NaN shall be returned. If x is 1, +0 shall be returned. If x is +Inf, x shall be returned. ERRORS
