tanh, tanhf, tanhl - hyperbolic tangent functions
double tanh(double x);
float tanhf(float x);
long double tanhl(long double x);
These functions shall compute the hyperbolic tangent of their argument x.
An application wishing to check for error situations should set errno to zero and call feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling these
functions. On return, if errno is non-zero or fetestexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_DIVBYZERO | FE_OVERFLOW | FE_UNDERFLOW) is non-zero, an error
Upon successful completion, these functions shall return the hyperbolic tangent of x.
If x is NaN, a NaN shall be returned.
If x is +-0, x shall be returned.
If x is +-Inf, +-1 shall be returned.
If x is subnormal, a range error may occur and x should be returned.
These functions may fail if:
The value of x is subnormal.
If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is non-zero, then errno shall be set to [ERANGE]. If the integer expression
(math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, then the underflow floating-point exception shall be raised.
The following sections are informative.
On error, the expressions (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) and (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) are independent of each other, but at
least one of them must be non-zero.
