NAMEexp2, exp2f, exp2l - base-2 exponential function
#include <math.h> double exp2(double x);
float exp2f(float x);
long double exp2l(long double x);
Link with -lm.
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
exp2(), exp2f(), exp2l():
_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99
DESCRIPTIONThese functions return the value of 2 raised to the power of x.
RETURN VALUEOn success, these functions return the base-2 exponential value of x.
For various special cases, including the handling of infinity and NaN, as well as overflows and underflows, see exp(3).
ERRORSSee math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.
For a discussion of the errors that can occur for these functions, see exp(3).
VERSIONSThese functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
