NAME
expm1, expm1f, expm1l  exponential minus 1
SYNOPSIS
#include
double expm1(double x);
float expm1f(float x);
long double expm1l(long double x);
Link with lm.
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
expm1(), expm1f(), expm1l(): _BSD_SOURCE  _SVID_SOURCE 
_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500  _ISOC99_SOURCE; or cc std=c99
DESCRIPTION
expm1(x) returns a value equivalent to
exp(x)  1
It is computed in a way that is accurate even if the value of x is near
zeroa case where exp(x)  1 would be inaccurate due to subtraction of
two numbers that are nearly equal.
CONFORMING TO
BSD, C99. The float and long double variants are C99 requirements.
