SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>
"double gamma (double "
x
");"
"float gammaf (float "
x
");"
"long double gammal (long double "
x
");"
DESCRIPTION
The
gamma()
functions exist for compatibility reasons. They are equivalent to
lgamma()
etc. Use these. Use of the name
gamma()
is confusing, since these functions do not compute the Gamma function, but the natural logarithm of the Gamma function.
"CONFORMING TO"
Nonstandard. Compatible with previous mistakes.
