NAME

       cproj, cprojf, cprojl - project into Riemann Sphere

SYNOPSIS

       #include <complex.h>

       double complex cproj(double complex z);
       float complex cprojf(float complex z);
       long double complex cprojl(long double complex z);

       Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION

       These  functions  project  a  point in the plane onto the surface of a Riemann Sphere, the
       one-point compactification of the complex plane.   Each  finite  point  z  projects  to  z
       itself.   Every  complex infinite value is projected to a single infinite value, namely to
       positive infinity on the real axis.

VERSIONS

       These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

CONFORMING TO

       C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

NOTES

       In glibc 2.11 and earlier, the implementation does something  different  (a  stereographic
       projection onto a Riemann Sphere).
