well,this can't be done until you introduce something called the exponential integral,you can read about it here,which doesn't have a closed form most of the time

the solution to the integral above is \[e^x\ln(x)-\text{Ei}(x)\]

where \(\text{Ei}\) denotes the exponential integral

Ah, cool, thanks Hummus! I'll take a look at it when I get a chance!

just use the expansion for ln x and integrate and have an approx result.
