sinh, sinhf, sinhl - hyperbolic sine functions
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>
double sinh(double x);
float sinhf(float x);
long double sinhl(long double x);
DESCRIPTION
These functions shall compute the hyperbolic sine of their argument x.
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 hyperbolic sine of x.
If the result would cause an overflow, a range error shall occur and ±HUGE_VAL, ±HUGE_VALF, and ±HUGE_VALL (with the same sign as x) shall be returned as appropriate for the type of the function.
If x is NaN, a NaN shall be returned.
If x is ±0 or ±Inf, x shall be returned.
If x is subnormal, a range error may occur and x should be returned.
ERRORS
These functions shall fail if:
- Range Error
- The result would cause an overflow.
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 overflow floating-point exception shall be raised.
These functions may fail if:
- Range Error
- The value 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
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.
