NAME
       sinh, sinhf, sinhl - hyperbolic sine function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double sinh(double x);
       float sinhf(float x);
       long double sinhl(long double x);

       Link with -lm.

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

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

DESCRIPTION
       The sinh() function returns the hyperbolic sine of x, which is defined mathematically as:

	   sinh(x) = (exp(x) - exp(-x)) / 2

RETURN VALUE
       On success, these functions return the hyperbolic sine 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), positive infinity  (negative  infinity)  is
       returned.

       If  the	result	overflows,  a  range  error  occurs,  and  the functions return HUGE_VAL,
       HUGE_VALF, or HUGE_VALL, respectively, with the same sign as x.

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:

       Range error: result overflow
	      errno  is  set  to  ERANGE.   An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is
	      raised.

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