#92 closed defect (invalid)

Type-derivation for log is inconsistent

Reported by: Raymond Toy Owned by: somebody
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Core Version: 2014-02
Keywords: Cc:



(defun foo (x)
  (declare (type (double-float 0d0) x))
  (log x))

When compiled, the compiler says the return type for foo is (OR DOUBLE-FLOAT (COMPLEX DOUBLE-FLOAT)). This is inconsistent with the return value of (log 0d0) and (log -0d0) which is EXT:DOUBLE-FLOAT-NEGATIVE-INFINITY (when the :DIVIDE-BY-ZERO trap is disabled).

The correct derived type should be just DOUBLE-FLOAT.

Fix ticket:92

Type derivation for log fixed to be consistent with the actual returned values.

  • src/compiler/float-tran.lisp:
    • Update LOG-DERIVE-TYPE-AUX-1 to compute the correct type.

  • tests/trac.lisp:

This is actually incorrect. We really want log(-0) to return -inf + i*pi so that the branch cuts of special functions can be computed correctly from the definition.
