POSIX 1003.1 - man page for math.h (posix section 0p)

<math.h>(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual			      <math.h>(P)

       math.h - mathematical declarations

       #include <math.h>

       Some  of  the  functionality  described on this reference page extends the ISO C standard.
       Applications shall define the appropriate feature test macro (see  the  System  Interfaces
       volume  of  IEEE Std 1003.1-2001,  Section 2.2, The Compilation Environment) to enable the
       visibility of these symbols in this header.

       The <math.h> header shall include definitions for at least the following types:

	      A real-floating type at least as wide as float.

	      A real-floating type at least as wide as double, and at least as wide as float_t.

       If FLT_EVAL_METHOD equals 0, float_t and double_t shall be float and double, respectively;
       if  FLT_EVAL_METHOD equals 1, they shall both be double; if FLT_EVAL_METHOD equals 2, they
       shall both be long double; for other values of FLT_EVAL_METHOD, they are otherwise  imple-

       The  <math.h> header shall define the following macros, where real-floating indicates that
       the argument shall be an expression of real-floating type:

	      int fpclassify(real-floating x);
	      int isfinite(real-floating x);
	      int isinf(real-floating x);
	      int isnan(real-floating x);
	      int isnormal(real-floating x);
	      int signbit(real-floating x);
	      int isgreater(real-floating x, real-floating y);
	      int isgreaterequal(real-floating x, real-floating y);
	      int isless(real-floating x, real-floating y);
	      int islessequal(real-floating x, real-floating y);
	      int islessgreater(real-floating x, real-floating y);
	      int isunordered(real-floating x, real-floating y);

       The <math.h> header shall provide for the following constants.  The  values  are  of  type
       double and are accurate within the precision of the double type.

       M_E    Value of e

	      Value of log_2e

	      Value of log_10e

       M_LN2  Value of log_e2

       M_LN10 Value of log_e10

       M_PI   Value of pi

       M_PI_2 Value of pi/2

       M_PI_4 Value of pi/4

       M_1_PI Value of 1/pi

       M_2_PI Value of 2/pi

	      Value of 2/ sqrt pi

	      Value of sqrt 2

	      Value of 1/sqrt 2

       The header shall define the following symbolic constants:

	      Value of maximum non-infinite single-precision floating-point number.

	      A  positive double expression, not necessarily representable as a float. Used as an
	      error value returned by the mathematics library. HUGE_VAL evaluates to +infinity on
	      systems supporting IEEE Std 754-1985.

	      A positive float constant expression. Used as an error value returned by the mathe-
	      matics  library.	HUGE_VALF  evaluates   to   +infinity	on   systems   supporting
	      IEEE Std 754-1985.

	      A  positive long double constant expression. Used as an error value returned by the
	      mathematics  library.  HUGE_VALL	evaluates  to  +infinity  on  systems  supporting
	      IEEE Std 754-1985.

	      A  constant expression of type float representing positive or unsigned infinity, if
	      available; else a positive constant of type float  that  overflows  at  translation

       NAN    A  constant  expression of type float representing a quiet NaN.  This symbolic con-
	      stant is only defined if the implementation supports quiet NaNs for the float type.

       The following macros shall be defined for number classification. They represent the  mutu-
       ally-exclusive kinds of floating-point values. They expand to integer constant expressions
       with distinct values. Additional  implementation-defined  floating-point  classifications,
       with  macro  definitions beginning with FP_ and an uppercase letter, may also be specified
       by the implementation.


       The following optional macros indicate whether the fma() family of functions are fast com-
       pared with direct code:


       The  FP_FAST_FMA macro shall be defined to indicate that the fma() function generally exe-
       cutes about as fast as, or faster than, a multiply and an  add  of  double  operands.  The
       other macros have the equivalent meaning for the float and long double versions.

       The  following  macros  shall  expand  to  integer  constant  expressions whose values are
       returned by ilogb( x) if x is zero or NaN, respectively. The value of FP_ILOGB0	shall  be
       either  {INT_MIN}  or  -  {INT_MAX}. The value of FP_ILOGBNAN shall be either {INT_MAX} or


       The following macros shall expand to the integer constants 1 and 2, respectively;


       The following macro shall expand to  an	expression  that  has  type  int  and  the  value
       MATH_ERRNO, MATH_ERREXCEPT, or the bitwise-inclusive OR of both:


       The  value of math_errhandling is constant for the duration of the program. It is unspeci-
       fied whether math_errhandling is a macro or an identifier  with	external  linkage.  If	a
       macro  definition  is  suppressed  or  a  program  defines  an  identifier  with  the name
       math_errhandling , the behavior	is  undefined.	If  the  expression  (math_errhandling	&
       MATH_ERREXCEPT)	can be non-zero, the implementation shall define the macros FE_DIVBYZERO,
       FE_INVALID, and FE_OVERFLOW in <fenv.h>.

       The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as	macros.  Function
       prototypes shall be provided.

       The following external variable shall be defined:

	      extern int signgam;

       The  behavior  of  each	of  the  functions defined in <math.h> is specified in the System
       Interfaces volume of IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 for all representable values of its input  argu-
       ments,  except  where stated otherwise. Each function shall execute as if it were a single
       operation without generating any externally visible exceptional conditions.

       The following sections are informative.

       The FP_CONTRACT pragma can be used to allow (if the state is on) or disallow (if the state
       is  off)  the implementation to contract expressions. Each pragma can occur either outside
       external declarations or preceding all explicit declarations and statements inside a  com-
       pound  statement.  When	outside  external  declarations, the pragma takes effect from its
       occurrence until another FP_CONTRACT pragma is encountered, or until the end of the trans-
       lation unit. When inside a compound statement, the pragma takes effect from its occurrence
       until another FP_CONTRACT pragma is encountered (including within a nested compound state-
       ment),  or until the end of the compound statement; at the end of a compound statement the
       state for the pragma is restored to its condition just before the compound  statement.  If
       this pragma is used in any other context, the behavior is undefined. The default state (on
       or off) for the pragma is implementation-defined.

       Before the ISO/IEC 9899:1999 standard, the math library was defined only for the  floating
       type  double.  All  the	names  formed  by appending 'f' or 'l' to a name in <math.h> were
       reserved to allow for  the  definition  of  float  and  long  double  libraries;  and  the
       ISO/IEC 9899:1999 standard provides for all three versions of math functions.

       The  functions  ecvt(), fcvt(), and gcvt() have been dropped from the ISO C standard since
       their capability is available through sprintf(). These are provided on XSI-conformant sys-
       tems supporting the Legacy Option Group.
