SQRT(3) BSD Library Functions Manual SQRT(3)NAME
cbrt, cbrtf, cbrtl, sqrt, sqrtf, sqrtl -- cube root and square root functions
LIBRARY
Math Library (libm, -lm)
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>
double
cbrt(double x);
float
cbrtf(float x);
long double
cbrtl(long double x);
double
sqrt(double x);
float
sqrtf(float x);
long double
sqrtl(long double x);
DESCRIPTION
The cbrt(), cbrtf(), and cbrtl() functions compute the cube root of x.
The sqrt(), sqrtf(), and sqrtl() functions compute the non-negative square root of x.
RETURN VALUES
The cbrt(), cbrtf(), and cbrtl() functions return the requested cube root. The sqrt(), sqrtf(), and sqrtl() functions return the requested
square root unless an error occurs. An attempt to take the sqrt() of negative x raises an invalid exception and causes an NaN to be returned
(except that the square root of -0 is valid and equal to -0.)
SEE ALSO fenv(3), math(3)STANDARDS
The cbrt(), cbrtf(), cbrtl(), sqrt(), sqrtf(), and sqrtl() functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99'').
HISTORY
The cbrt() function appeared in 4.3BSD. The sqrtl() function appeared in FreeBSD 8.0. The cbrtl() function appeared in FreeBSD 9.0.

I'm new to *nixs and I decided to start with FreeBSD.
I downloaded the ISO and installed it successfully, and managed to log in as root.
Now everytime I try to enter into a directory ( I think thats what Im doing) such as /etc or /usr I always will get a permission denied.
Any help is... (2 Replies)

Hi!
when i'm trying to compile this lite example
on my linux machine I'll get errors and i don't know why..
#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h> /* needed by sqrt() */
int main()
{
printf("%f", sqrt(10.0));
return (0);
}
this is the error:

I was writing a simple program in linux, which includes sqrt function of c.
I included the math.h. But when I use gcc to compile it, it gave an error message:
/home/murat/tmp/ccOv9upo.o(.text+0x4b): In function `main':
: undefined reference to `sqrt'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Hi, I got an easy problem for you but really difficult for me 'cause I am pretty new to this field
I got header file <math.h> included in my .c file , then I write the code as below:
k = sqrt(i); /* both variables k and i are int */
then I cc temp.c
it says like this
undefined... (4 Replies)

hi friends
can any body tell me how can i find sqrt of a any given number without using expr in bash shell
while i am doing i got some errors please take a look
and code is here
x=$((( ( sqrt($1) ) | bc )))
echo $x
$ sh quadratic-eqn-roots.sh 9

This so basic that it should work.... Any ideas would be appreciared. Using a number directly in the sqrt allows it to compile.

Hi frieds, I don't understand the difference between single square bracket and double square brackets in a IF condition.
Ex.
if ;
then
RETURNJOB=1
else
RETURNJOB=0
fi
It run, but this
if ];
then
RETURNJOB=1
else
RETURNJOB=0

Hi all, (mainly Neo)...
I keep noticing that the SQRT code I wrote recently for a POSIX shell keeps appearing, (the green colour sticks out like a sore thumb).
So I decided to take a look on Google.
Guess what?
UNIX.COM comes first in Google's listing just from two words, see image... (2 Replies)
