log1p(x) returns a value equivalent to
log (1 + x)
It 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
An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
Pole error: x is -1
A divide-by-zero floating-point exception (FE_DIVBYZERO) is raised.
These functions do not set errno.
The log1p(), log1pf(), and log1pl() functions are thread-safe.
