These functions return a value equivalent to exp(x) - 1 The result is computed in a way that is accurate even if the value of x is near zero---a case where exp(x) - 1 would be inaccurate due to subtraction of two numbers that are nearly equal.
On success, these functions return exp(x) - 1. If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned. If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned. If x is positive infinity, positive infinity is returned. If x is negative infinity, -1 is returned. If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return -HUGE_VAL, -HUGE_VALF, or -HUGE_VALL, respectively.
See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions. The following errors can occur: Range error, overflow errno is set to ERANGE (but see BUGS). An overflow floating- point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.

C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.
For some large negative x values (where the function result approaches -1), expm1() raises a bogus underflow floating-point exception. For some large positive x values, expm1() raises a bogus invalid floating-point exception in addition to the expected overflow exception, and returns a NaN instead of positive infinity. Before version 2.11, the glibc implementation did not set errno to ERANGE when a range error occurred.
