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

NAME
       tanh, tanhf, tanhl - hyperbolic tangent function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double tanh(double x);
       float tanhf(float x);
       long double tanhl(long double x);

       Link with -lm.

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

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

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

	   tanh(x) = sinh(x) / cosh(x)

RETURN VALUE
       On success, these functions return the hyperbolic tangent 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), +1 (-1) is returned.

ERRORS
       No errors occur.

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