Suppose you had $x-e^x=c$ and you know that if you can put it into the form $k=ge^{g}$, then you can take the Lambert W function of both sides and obtain $g=W(k)$. So, can you get $x-e^x=c$ into the form $-(x-c)e^{-(x-c)}=-e^{c}$ and then taking the W function of both sides get $-(x-c)=W(-e^{c})$. Alright then, now do it with $y'$, isolate $y'$, and then integrate.

. . . oh yeah . . . end special function discrimination: Equal rights for special functions!

. . . same dif with the other one too. Pretty sure anyway, haven't worked it out and checked it though.
