NAME

     exp2, exp2f, exp2l - base-2 exponential function

SYNOPSIS

     #include <math.h>
     double exp2(double x);
     float exp2f(float x);
     long double exp2l(long double x);
     Link with -lm.
 Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
     exp2(), exp2f(), exp2l():
         _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L

DESCRIPTION

     These functions return the value of 2 raised to the power of x.

RETURN VALUE

     On success, these functions return the base-2 exponential value of x.
     For  various special cases, including the handling of infinity and NaN,
     as well as overflows and underflows, see exp(3).

ERRORS

     See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an  error
     has occurred when calling these functions.
