NAME         top

       log10, log10f, log10l -  base-10 logarithmic function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <math.h>

       double log10(double x);
       float log10f(float x);
       long double log10l(long double x);

       Link with -lm.

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

       log10f(), log10l():
           _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
               || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
               || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION         top

       These functions return the base 10 logarithm of x.

RETURN VALUE         top

       On success, these functions return the base 10 logarithm of x.

       For special cases, including where x is 0, 1, negative, infinity, or
       NaN, see log(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 log(3).
