NAME

sqrt, sqrtf, sqrtl - square root function  

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>double sqrt(double x);
float sqrtf(float x);
long double sqrtl(long double x);

Link with -lm.

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

sqrtf(), sqrtl():

_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
    || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
    || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE
 

DESCRIPTION

These functions return the nonnegative square root of x.  

RETURN VALUE

On success, these functions return the square root of x.

If xis a NaN, a NaN is returned.

If xis +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.

If xis positive infinity, positive infinity is returned.

If xis less than -0, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.  

ERRORS

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 less than -0
errnois set to EDOM. An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
