# hypotl(3) [freebsd man page]

```HYPOT(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 						  HYPOT(3)

NAME
hypot, hypotf, hypotl, cabs, cabsf, cabsl -- Euclidean distance and complex absolute value functions

LIBRARY
Math Library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>

double
hypot(double x, double y);

float
hypotf(float x, float y);

long double
hypotl(long double x, long double y);

#include <complex.h>

double
cabs(double complex z);

float
cabsf(float complex z);

long double
cabsl(long double complex z);

DESCRIPTION
The hypot(), hypotf() and hypotl() functions compute the sqrt(x*x+y*y) in such a way that underflow will not happen, and overflow occurs only
if the final result deserves it.  The cabs(), cabsf() and cabsl() functions compute the complex absolute value of z.

hypot(infinity, v) = hypot(v, infinity) = +infinity for all v, including NaN.

ERROR (due to Roundoff, etc.)
Below 0.97 ulps.  Consequently hypot(5.0, 12.0) = 13.0 exactly; in general, hypot and cabs return an integer whenever an integer might be
expected.

NOTES
As might be expected, hypot(v, NaN) and hypot(NaN, v) are NaN for all finite v.  But programmers might be surprised at first to discover that
hypot(+-infinity, NaN) = +infinity.  This is intentional; it happens because hypot(infinity, v) = +infinity for all v, finite or infinite.
Hence hypot(infinity, v) is independent of v.  Unlike the reserved operand fault on a VAX, the IEEE NaN is designed to disappear when it
turns out to be irrelevant, as it does in hypot(infinity, NaN).

carg(3), math(3), sqrt(3)

STANDARDS
The hypot(), hypotf(), hypotl(), cabs(), cabsf(), and cabsl() functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99'').

HISTORY
Both a hypot() function and a cabs() function appeared in Version 7 AT&T UNIX.

## The Whole Story on #! /usr/bin/ksh

Introduction Originally, we only had one shell on unix. When ran a command, the shell would attempt to invoke one of the exec() system calls on it. It the command was an executable, the exec would succeed and the command would run. If the exec() failed, the shell would not give up, instead it...

## Unix File Permissions

Introduction I have seen some misinformation regarding Unix file permissions. I will try to set the record straight. Take a look at this example of some output from ls: \$ ls -ld /usr/bin /usr/bin/cat drwxrwxr-x 3 root bin 8704 Sep 23 2004 /usr/bin -r-xr-xr-x 1 bin bin ...

## Memory Leaks

Suppose I have a main() function with only one malloc statement allocating say some 1 gb memory. Also say my system has 1 gb of ram. main() { malloc(1gb) return(0) } The program above exits without freeing the memory. In this case will the 1 gb of heap memory be returned...

## Scripts without shebang

I see lot of ad-hoc shell scripts in our servers which don't have a shebang at the beginning . Does this mean that it will run on any shell ? Is it a good practice to create scripts (even ad-hoc ones) without shebang ?

## Is UNIX an open source OS ?

Hi everyone, I know the following questions are noobish questions but I am asking them because I am confused about the basics of history behind UNIX and LINUX. Ok onto business, my questions are-: Was/Is UNIX ever an open source operating system ? If UNIX was...

## A simple UNIXtime component in Vue.js

A shout out to Scott who gave me a helping hand to turn a simple sample Vue.js app I wrote yesterday into a Vue.js component: Vue.component("unix-time", { template: `<div class="time">{{unixtime}}</div>`, data() { return { unixtime: "" }; }, methods: { ...

## UNIX Environment Setup - (Just starting!)

## Is it safe to install x86 Solaris 10 U6 after installed-Linux-and-FreeBSD?

I've installed Slack 14.2 on /dev/sda1 (/dev/sda2 is swap) and FreeBSD 12 on /dev/sda3 and lilo is the boot manager. FreeBSD slices are as follows; / on /dev/ada0S3a, swap on /dev/ada0s3e, /var on /dev/ada0s3b, /tmp on /dev/ada0s3d and /usr on /dev/ada0s3f. I hesitate to install Solaris 10...
