TANH(3) 						     Linux Programmer's Manual							   TANH(3)

NAME
tanh, tanhf, tanhl - hyperbolic tangent function SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> double tanh(double x); float tanhf(float x); long double tanhl(long double x); Link with -lm. Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): tanhf(), tanhl(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L; or cc -std=c99 DESCRIPTION
The tanh() function returns the hyperbolic tangent of x, which is defined mathematically as: tanh(x) = sinh(x) / cosh(x) RETURN VALUE
On success, these functions return the hyperbolic tangent of x. If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned. If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned. If x is positive infinity (negative infinity), +1 (-1) is returned. ERRORS
No errors occur. CONFORMING TO
C99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89. SEE ALSO
acosh(3), asinh(3), atanh(3), cosh(3), ctanh(3), sinh(3) COLOPHON
