sqrt
Hi!
when i'm trying to compile this lite example
on my linux machine I'll get errors and i don't know why..
#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h> /* needed by sqrt() */
int main()
{
printf("%f", sqrt(10.0));
return (0);
}
this is the error:
/tmp/cc33hNVHK.o: In function `main`:
/tmp/cc3hNVHK.o(.text+0x14): undefined reference to `sqrt`
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I was writing a simple program in linux, which includes sqrt function of c.
I included the math.h. But when I use gcc to compile it, it gave an error message:
/home/murat/tmp/ccOv9upo.o(.text+0x4b): In function `main':

HI,
I have a file which i catenate and using the fields in the file, I would like to get sqrt of it. I tried to man the function but it normally would need an echo as well as bc.
What I am intending to find out is catenate a file where let say
cat a.txt| awk ' {
t= h*($3+$2);
t=... (7 Replies)

This so basic that it should work.... Any ideas would be appreciared. Using a number directly in the sqrt allows it to compile.

Hi,
i have a the following script:

b=9
let "c= b*a"
let "d=sqrt $c "

But when i execute the code, it gives me the an error saying:

Hi all...
This is just a fun project to see if it is possible to get a square root of a positive integer from 1 to 9200000 to 6 decimal places on a 64 bit architecture machine.
It is coded around dash and the results show the values from 0 to 10000.
Complex numbers can easily be catered for by... (3 Replies)

sqrtl
sqrt(3M) Mathematical Library Functions sqrt(3M)
NAME
sqrt, sqrtf, sqrtl - square root function
SYNOPSIS
c99 [ flag... ] file... -lm [ library... ]
#include <math.h>
double sqrt(double x);
float sqrtf(float x);
long double sqrtl(long double x);
DESCRIPTION
These functions compute the square root of their argument x.
RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, these functions return the square root of x.
For finite values of x < -0, a domain error occurs and either a NaN (if supported) or an implementation-defined value is returned.
If x is NaN, a NaN is returned.
If x is +-0 or +Inf, x is returned.
If x is -Inf, a domain error occurs and a NaN is returned.
ERRORS
These functions will fail if:
Domain Error The finite value of x is < -0 or x is -Inf.
If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, the invalid floating-point exception is raised.
The sqrt() function sets errno to EDOM if the value of x is negative.
USAGE
An application wanting to check for exceptions should call feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling these functions. On return, if
fetestexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_DIVBYZERO | FE_OVERFLOW | FE_UNDERFLOW) is non-zero, an exception has been raised. An application should
either examine the return value or check the floating point exception flags to detect exceptions.
An application can also set errno to 0 before calling sqrt(). On return, if errno is non-zero, an error has occurred. The sqrtf() and
sqrtl() functions do not set errno.
