SQRT(3) BSD Library Functions Manual SQRT(3)NAME
cbrt, cbrtf, sqrt, sqrtf -- cube root and square root functions
LIBRARY
Math Library (libm, -lm)
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>
double
cbrt(double x);
float
cbrtf(float x);
double
sqrt(double x);
float
sqrtf(float x);
DESCRIPTION
The cbrt() and cbrtf() functions compute the cube root of x.
The sqrt() and sqrtf() functions compute the non-negative square root of x.
RETURN VALUES
If x is negative, sqrt(x) and sqrtf(x) set the global variable errno to EDOM.
SEE ALSO math(3)STANDARDS
The sqrt() function conforms to ANSI X3.159-1989 (``ANSI C89'').
HISTORY
The cbrt() function appeared in 4.3BSD.

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.

Introduction
I have seen some misinformation regarding Unix file permissions. I will try to set the record straight. Take a look at this example of some output from ls:
$ ls -ld /usr/bin /usr/bin/cat
drwxrwxr-x 3 root bin 8704 Sep 23 2004 /usr/bin
-r-xr-xr-x 1 bin bin ... (6 Replies)

I have a file which looks roughly like this:
996 mmmmmmm
996 xxxxxxxxxxxxx
99600 ssssssssss
9964 fffffffffffff
and would like to sort it numerically on the first field. I tried:
sort -nr --key=1 ....
The output I get is:

Suppose I have a main() function with only one malloc statement allocating say some 1 gb memory. Also say my system has 1 gb of ram.
main()
{
malloc(1gb)
return(0)
}
The program above exits without freeing the memory.
In this case will the 1 gb of heap memory be returned... (9 Replies)

I'm trying to install a PGX32 video card on my Sparc 10 Ultra running Solaris 10.
I've got the Oracle installation guide for it and I got as far as:

I don't have a CD-ROM by that name and a web search for that... (21 Replies)

Hey All,
Quick question...
I'm writing a short script to check if a continuous port is running on a server.
I'm using "ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep processName" and I was wondering if it was better/more reliable to just check the
return code from the command or if its better to pipe to... (12 Replies)

I installed NetBSD 6.1.2 amd64 and can't find the apm utility. Is it not in the base system?
Is it necessary to recompile the default amd64 kernel to use apm?
Or is there a new method for power management and suspend/resume? (2 Replies)

Hi,
I am learning shell scripting for the first time. I use AT&T Korn Shell, Version AJM 93u+ 2012-08-01, compiled from source on NetBSD.
So far I have managed to set up what I think is a useful and pleasing shell prompt, which can be seen in the image attached to this post.
The prompt is... (2 Replies)

Hey gang, I have a list of times I need to sum up. This list can vary from a few to a few thousand entries. Now I had found a closed reference to adding time titled "add up time with xx:yy format in bash how?" In it, the example works great for that formatted list of times... This is the reply code...

Usually when I on the evening go to bed I take some interesting book with me. I read it for a while to get me down to sleep. Probably most people seek information from the Nett by googleing but I am so oldfashioned I prefer a real book ;)
But what a book. The one I found and ordered is BSD Unix®... (0 Replies)
