# sqrtl(3m) [sunos man page]

```sqrt(3M)						  Mathematical Library Functions						  sqrt(3M)

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.
