EXP2(3)                   Linux Programmer's Manual                  EXP2(3)

NAME         top

       exp2, exp2f, exp2l - base-2 exponential function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #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():
           _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L

DESCRIPTION         top

       These functions return the value of 2 raised to the power of x.

RETURN VALUE         top

       On 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).

ERRORS         top

       See 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).

VERSIONS         top

       These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
