Linux 2.6 - man page for acosl (linux section 3posix)

ACOS(P) 			    POSIX Programmer's Manual				  ACOS(P)

NAME
       acos, acosf, acosl - arc cosine functions

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double acos(double x);
       float acosf(float x);
       long double acosl(long double x);

DESCRIPTION
       These  functions  shall compute the principal value of the arc cosine of their argument x.
       The value of x should be in the range [-1,1].

       An application wishing to check for error situations should set errno  to  zero	and  call
       feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT)  before calling these functions.  On return, if errno is non-
       zero or fetestexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_DIVBYZERO | FE_OVERFLOW | FE_UNDERFLOW) is	non-zero,
       an error has occurred.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, these functions shall return the arc cosine of x, in the range
       [0,pi] radians.

       For finite values of x not in the range [-1,1], a domain error shall occur, and	   either
       a NaN (if supported), or   an implementation-defined value shall be returned.

       If x is NaN, a NaN shall be returned.

       If x is +1, +0 shall be returned.

       If  x  is +-Inf, a domain error shall occur, and either a NaN (if supported), or an imple-
       mentation-defined value shall be returned.

ERRORS
       These functions shall fail if:

       Domain Error
	      The x argument is finite and is not in the range [-1,1],	  or is +-Inf.

       If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is non-zero, then errno shall be
       set  to [EDOM]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero,
       then the invalid floating-point exception shall be raised.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       On  error,  the	expressions  (math_errhandling	&  MATH_ERRNO)	and  (math_errhandling	&
       MATH_ERREXCEPT) are independent of each other, but at least one of them must be non-zero.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
