NAME cbrt, cbrtf, cbrtl - cube root function

SYNOPSIS #include <math.h>

double cbrt(double x); float cbrtf(float x); long double cbrtl(long double x);

Link with -lm.

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

cbrt(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 || _ISOC99_SOURCE; or cc -std=c99 cbrtf(), cbrtl(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE; or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION The cbrt() function returns the (real) cube root of x. This function cannot fail; every representable real value has a representable real cube root.

RETURN VALUE These functions return the cube root of x.

If x is +0, -0, positive infinity, negative infinity, or NaN, x is returned.

ERRORS No errors occur.
