NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for erfcf (netbsd section 3)

ERF(3)					     BSD Library Functions Manual				       ERF(3)

NAME
erf, erff, erfc, erfcf -- error function operators
LIBRARY
Math Library (libm, -lm)
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> double erf(double x); float erff(float x); double erfc(double x); float erfcf(float x);
DESCRIPTION
These functions calculate the error function of x. The erf() calculates the error function of x; where erf(x) = 2/sqrt(pi)*integral from 0 to x of exp(-t*t) dt. The erfc() function calculates the complementary error function of x; that is erfc() subtracts the result of the error function erf(x) from 1.0. This is useful, since for large x places disappear.
