NAME
log, logf, logl, log10, log10f, log10l, log2, log2f, log2l, log1p, log1pf, log1pl -- logarithm functions

LIBRARY
Math Library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>

double
log(double x);

float
logf(float x);

long double
logl(long double x);

double
log10(double x);

float
log10f(float x);

long double
log10l(long double x);

double
log2(double x);

float
log2f(float x);

long double
log2l(long double x);

double
log1p(double x);

float
log1pf(float x);

long double
log1pl(long double x);

DESCRIPTION
The log(), logf(), and logl() functions compute the natural logarithm of x.

The log10(), log10f(), and log10l() functions compute the logarithm base 10 of x, while log2(), log2f(), and log2l() compute the logarithm
base 2 of x.

The log1p(), log1pf(), and log1pl() functions compute the natural logarithm of 1 + x.  Computing the natural logarithm as log1p(x) is more
accurate than computing it as log(1 + x) when x is close to zero.

RETURN VALUES
These functions return the requested logarithm; the logarithm of 1 is +0.	An attempt to take the logarithm of +-0 results in a divide-by-
zero exception, and -infinity is returned.  Otherwise, attempting to take the logarithm of a negative number results in an invalid exception
and a return value of NaN.

STANDARDS
The log(), logf(), logl(), log10(), log10f(), log10l(), log2(), log2f(), log2l(), log1p(), log1pf(), and log1pl() functions conform to
ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99'').
