NAME
sqrt, sqrtf, sqrtl - square root function SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lm [ library... ] #include <math.h> double sqrt(double x); float sqrtf(float x); long double sqrtl(long double x); DESCRIPTION
These functions compute the square root of their argument x. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, these functions return the square root of x. For finite values of x < -0, a domain error occurs and either a NaN (if supported) or an implementation-defined value is returned. If x is NaN, a NaN is returned. If x is +-0 or +Inf, x is returned. If x is -Inf, a domain error occurs and a NaN is returned. ERRORS
These functions will fail if: Domain Error The finite value of x is < -0 or x is -Inf. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, the invalid floating-point exception is raised. The sqrt() function sets errno to EDOM if the value of x is negative. USAGE
An application wanting to check for exceptions should call feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling these functions. On return, if fetestexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_DIVBYZERO | FE_OVERFLOW | FE_UNDERFLOW) is non-zero, an exception has been raised. An application should either examine the return value or check the floating point exception flags to detect exceptions. An application can also set errno to 0 before calling sqrt(). On return, if errno is non-zero, an error has occurred. The sqrtf() and sqrtl() functions do not set errno. ATTRIBUTES
