tanh, tanhf, tanhl — hyperbolic tangent function

Synopsis

#include <math.h>

double tanh(double x);

float tanhf(float x);

long double tanhl(long double x);

Link with -lm.

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

tanhf(), tanhl():

_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
|| /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
|| /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

Description

These functions return the hyperbolic tangent of x, which is defined mathematically as:

tanh(x) = sinh(x) / cosh(x)

Return Value

On success, these functions return the hyperbolic tangent of x.

If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.

If x is positive infinity (negative infinity), +1 (-1) is returned.

Errors

No errors occur.
