DESCRIPTION

These functions return the (real) cube root of x. This function cannot fail; every representable real value has a representable real cube root.

RETURN VALUE

These functions return the cube root of x.

If x is +0, −0, positive infinity, negative infinity, or NaN, x is returned.

ERRORS

No errors occur.
