log[edit | edit source]
#include <cmath> double log( double num );
The function log() returns the natural (base e) logarithm of num. There's a domain error if num is negative, a range error if num is zero.
In order to calculate the logarithm of x to an arbitrary base b, you can use:
double answer = log(x) / log(b);
