RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for gammaf (redhat section 3)

GAMMA(3)					 libc math functions					     GAMMA(3)

NAME
gamma - logarithm of the gamma function
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> double gamma (double x); float gammaf (float x); long double gammal (long double x);
DESCRIPTION
The gamma() functions exist for compatibility reasons. They are equivalent to lgamma() etc. Use these. Use of the name gamma() is confusing, since these functions do not compute the Gamma function, but the natural loga- rithm of the Gamma function.
CONFORMING TO
Nonstandard. Compatible with previous mistakes.

lgamma(3), signgam(3), tgamma(3)
