# Showing that $\int_{0}^{1} \frac{x-1}{\ln(x)} \mathrm dx=\ln2$

I would like to show that

$$\int_{0}^{1} \frac{x-1}{\ln(x)} \mathrm dx=\ln2$$

What annoys me is that $x-1$ is the numerator so the geometric power series is useless.

Any idea?

In particular, let $$J(\alpha)=\int_0^1\frac{x^\alpha-1}{\log(x)}\;dx$$. Then one has that $$\frac{\partial}{\partial\alpha}J(\alpha)=\int_0^1\frac{\partial}{\partial\alpha}\frac{x^\alpha-1}{\log(x)}\;dx=\int_0^1x^\alpha\;dx=\frac{1}{\alpha+1}$$ and so we know that $\displaystyle J(\alpha)=\log(\alpha+1)+C$. Noting that $J(0)=0$ tells us that $C=0$ and so $J(\alpha)=\log(\alpha+1)$.
$\displaystyle \int_{0}^{1}\frac{x-1}{\log{x}}\;{dx} = \int_{0}^{1}\int_{0}^{1}x^{t}\;{dt}\;{dx} =\int_{0}^{1}\int_{0}^{1}x^{t}\;{dx}\;{dt} = \int_{0}^{1}\frac{1}{1+t}\;{dt} = \log(2).$
Making the substitution $u=\ln x$, we get $$I=\int_{-\infty}^0\frac{e^u-1}u e^udu=-\int_0^{+\infty}\frac{e^{-2s}-e^{-s}}sds=\ln\frac 21=\ln 2,$$ since we recognize a Frullani integral type.
