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

NAME
cos, cosf, cosl - cosine function
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> double cos(double x); float cosf(float x); long double cosl(long double x); Link with -lm. Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): cosf(), cosl(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L; or cc -std=c99
DESCRIPTION
The cos() function returns the cosine of x, where x is given in radians.
RETURN VALUE
On success, these functions return the cosine of x. If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned. If x is positive infinity or negative infinity, 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 an infinity errno is set to EDOM (but see BUGS). 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.
BUGS
Before version 2.10, the glibc implementation did not set errno to EDOM when a domain error occurred.
