Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

log1p():

_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L

These functions return a value equivalent to

` log (1 + x)`

The result is computed in a way that is accurate even if the value of `x`

is near zero.

On success, these functions return the natural logarithm of `(1 + x)`

.

If `x`

is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

If `x`

is positive infinity, positive infinity is returned.

If `x`

is -1, a pole error occurs, and the functions return -**HUGE_VAL**, -**HUGE_VALF**, or -**HUGE_VALL**, respectively.

If `x`

is less than -1 (including negative infinity), a domain error occurs, and a NaN (not a number) is returned.

See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.

The following errors can occur:

- Domain error:
`x`

is less than -1 `errno`

is set to**EDOM**(but see BUGS). An invalid floating-point exception (**FE_INVALID**) is raised.- Pole error:
`x`

is -1 `errno`

is set to**ERANGE**(but see BUGS). A divide-by-zero floating-point exception (**FE_DIVBYZERO**) is raised.

For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).

C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

Before version 2.22, the glibc implementation did not set `errno`

to **EDOM** when a domain error occurred.

Before version 2.22, the glibc implementation did not set `errno`

to **ERANGE** when a range error occurred.
