NAME

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.
