Compute the cube root of a number
Synopsis:
#include <math.h>
double cbrt ( double x );
float cbrtf ( float x );
long double cbrtl ( long double x );
Arguments:
 x
 The number whose cube root you want to calculate.
Library:
 libm
 The generalpurpose math library.
 libmsve
 (QNX Neutrino 7.1 or later)
A library that optimizes the code for ARMv8.2 chips that have Scalable Vector Extension hardware.
Your system requirements will determine how you should work with these libraries:
 If you want only selected processes to run with the SVE version, you can include both libraries in your OS image
and use the l m or l msve option to
qcc
to link explicitly against the appropriate one.
 If you want all processes to use the SVE version, include libmsve.so in your OS image
and set up a symbolic link from libm.so to libmsve.so.
Use the l m option to
qcc
to link against the library.
Note:
Compile your program with the fnobuiltin option to prevent the compiler from using a
builtin version of the function.
Description:
The cbrt(), cbrtf(), and cbrtl()
functions compute the cube root of x.
To check for error situations, use
feclearexcept()
and
fetestexcept().
For example:
 Call feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling
cbrt(), cbrtf(), or cbrtl().
 On return, if fetestexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT)
is nonzero, then an error has occurred.
Returns:
The cube root of x.
If x is: 
These functions return: 
Errors: 
±0.0 
x 
— 
±Inf 
x 
— 
NaN 
NaN

These functions raise FE_INEXACT if the FPU reports that
the result can't be exactly represented as a floatingpoint number.
Examples:
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <math.h>
int main(int argc, char** argv) {
double a, b;
a = 27.0;
b = cbrt(a);
printf("The cube root of %f is %f \n", a, b);
return(EXIT_SUCCESS);
}
produces the output:
The cube root of 27.000000 is 3.000000
