libm -- Lua interface to the math(3) library
local lm = require 'libm'
The libm Lua binding provides access to the math(3) library. If these functions are given an argument outside the domain of the function the return value will be NaN. This can be checked with lm.isnan(). Many of these functions have native equivalents in the Lua math library. Others, like round(3), cbrt(3), and the hyperbolic trigonometry func- tions, are not provided without an auxiliary module. The functions that are redundant are provided for completeness. Since these functions map quite closely to the functions in the math library, detailed information about their behavior can be found in the man pages for each function in section 3 of the manual.

The functions finite, isfinite, isinf, and isnan return integers in the math library, the results are converted to lua boolean values by this interface.
The single precision float, and long double data types, implemented in several of the libm routines, are not supported by this interface. The math library has a long development history, but if a bug exists there, it will certainly exist in this interface as well.
