cbrt, cbrtf, cbrtl - cube root function

#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():

_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE
cbrtf(), cbrtl():

These functions return the (real) cube root of x. This function cannot fail; every representable real value has a representable real cube root.

These functions return the cube root of x.

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

No errors occur.
