TANH(3) Linux Programmer's Manual TANH(3)
tanh, tanhf, tanhl - hyperbolic tangent function
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)):
_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99
The tanh() function returns the hyperbolic tangent of x, which is defined mathematically
tanh(x) = sinh(x) / cosh(x)
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.
No errors occur.
C99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
