In addition sufficient additional overloads of the double versions of the above functions are provided, so that calling the function with any mixture of float, double, long double, or integer arguments is supported, with the return type determined by the result type calculation rules.

For example:

expintf(2.0f);  // float version, returns float.
expint(2.0f);   // also calls the float version and returns float.
expint(2.0);    // double version, returns double.
expintl(2.0L);  // long double version, returns a long double.
expint(2.0L);   // also calls the long double version.
expint(2);      // integer argument is treated as a double, returns double.
