TANH(3P)				      POSIX Programmer's Manual 				     TANH(3P)

PROLOG
This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.
NAME
tanh, tanhf, tanhl - hyperbolic tangent functions
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> double tanh(double x); float tanhf(float x); long double tanhl(long double x);
DESCRIPTION
These functions shall compute the hyperbolic tangent of their argument x. An application wishing to check for error situations should set errno to zero and call feclearex- cept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling these functions. On return, if errno is non-zero or fetestex- cept(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 hyperbolic tangent of x. If x is NaN, a NaN shall be returned. If x is +-0, x shall be returned. If x is +-Inf, +-1 shall be returned. If x is subnormal, a range error may occur and x should be returned.
ERRORS
These functions may fail if: Range Error The value of x is subnormal. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is non-zero, then errno shall be set to [ERANGE]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, then the underflow 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 indepen- dent of each other, but at least one of them must be non-zero.
RATIONALE
None.
FUTURE DIRECTIONS
None.
