       j0, j1, jn - Bessel functions of the first kind

       #include <math.h>

       double j0(double x);
       double j1(double x);
       double jn(int n, double x);

       The  j0(),  j1(), and jn() functions shall compute Bessel functions of x of the first kind
       of orders 0, 1, and n, respectively.

       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.

       Upon successful completion, these functions shall return the relevant Bessel value of x of
       the first kind.

       If the x argument is too large in magnitude, or the correct result would cause  underflow,
       0 shall be returned and a range error may occur.

       If x is NaN, a NaN shall be returned.

       These functions may fail if:

       Range Error
	      The value of x was too large in magnitude, or an underflow occurred.

       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 underflow floating-point exception shall be raised.

       No other errors shall occur.

       The following sections are informative.


       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.
