sincos man page

sincos, sincosf, sincosl — calculate sin and cos simultaneously

Synopsis

#define _GNU_SOURCE /* See feature_test_macros(7) */
#include <math.h>

void sincos(double x, double *sin, double *cos);

void sincosf(float x, float *sin, float *cos);

void sincosl(long double x, long double *sin, long double *cos);

Link with -lm.

Description

Several applications need sine and cosine of the same angle x. These functions compute both at the same time, and store the results in *sin and *cos.

If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned in *sin and *cos.

If x is positive infinity or negative infinity, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned in *sin and *cos.

Return Value

These functions return void.

Errors

See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.

The following errors can occur:

Domain error: x is an infinity
An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.

These functions do not set errno.

Versions

These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
