NAMEtanh, 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(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L; or cc -std=c99
DESCRIPTIONThe tanh() function returns the hyperbolic tangent of x, which is defined mathematically as: tanh(x) = sinh(x) / cosh(x)
RETURN VALUEOn 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.
ERRORSNo errors occur.
CONFORMING TOC99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
