NAME

       log2, log2f, log2l - base-2 logarithmic function

SYNOPSIS

       #include <math.h>

       double log2(double x);
       float log2f(float x);
       long double log2l(long double x);

       Link with -lm.

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

       log2(), log2f(), log2l():
           _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L

DESCRIPTION

       These functions return the base 2 logarithm of x.

RETURN VALUE

       On success, these functions return the base 2 logarithm of x.

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

ERRORS

       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).

VERSIONS

       These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
