NAME
       asin, asinf, asinl - arc sine function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double asin(double x);
       float asinf(float x);
       long double asinl(long double x);

       Link with -lm.

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       asinf(), asinl():
	   _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
	   _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	   or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION
       The asin() function calculates the principal value of the arc sine of x; that is the value
       whose sine is x.

RETURN VALUE
       On  success,  these  functions return the principal value of the arc sine of x in radians;
       the return value is in the range [-pi/2, pi/2].

       If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

       If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.

       If x is outside the range [-1, 1], a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.

ERRORS
       See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has  occurred  when
       calling these functions.

       The following errors can occur:

       Domain error: x is outside the range [-1, 1]
	      errno is set to EDOM.  An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001.  The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
