       #include <complex.h>

       double complex casin(double complex z);
       float complex casinf(float complex z);
       long double complex casinl(long double complex z);

       Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION
       The  casin()  function  calculates  the	complex  arc  sine  of	z.  If y = casin(z), then
       z = csin(y).  The real part of y is chosen in the interval [-pi/2,pi/2].

       One has:

	   casin(z) = -i clog(iz + csqrt(1 - z * z))

VERSIONS
       These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
