NAME
atanh, atanhf, atanhl - inverse hyperbolic tangent functions SYNOPSIS
c99 [ flag... ] file... -lm [ library... ] #include <math.h> double atanh(double x); float atanhf(float x); long double atanhl(long double x); DESCRIPTION
These functions compute the inverse hyperbolic tangent of their argument x. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, these functions return the inverse hyperbolic tangent of their argument. If x is +-1, a pole error occurs and atanh(), atanhf(), and atanhl() return the value of the macro HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, and HUGE_VALL, respectively, with the same sign as the correct value of the function. For finite |x| > 1, a domain error occurs and a NaN is returned. If x is NaN, NaN is returned. If x is +0, x is returned. If x is +Inf, a domain error occurs and a NaN is returned. For exceptional cases, matherr(3M) tabulates the values to be returned by atanh() as specified by SVID3 and XPG3. ERRORS
These functions will fail if: Domain Error The x argument is finite and not in the range [-1,1], or is +-Inf. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, the invalid floating-point exception is raised. The atanh() function sets errno to EDOM if the absolute value of x is greater than 1.0. Pole Error The x argument is +-1. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, then the divide-by-zero floating-point exception is raised. The atanh() function sets errno to ERANGE if the absolute value of x is equal to 1.0. USAGE
An application wanting to check for exceptions should call feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling these functions. On return, if fetestexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_DIVBYZERO | FE_OVERFLOW | FE_UNDERFLOW) is non-zero, an exception has been raised. An application should either examine the return value or check the floating point exception flags to detect exceptions. An application can also set errno to 0 before calling atanh(). On return, if errno is non-zero, an error has occurred. The atanhf() and atanhl() functions do not set errno. ATTRIBUTES
