ACOS(3)                    Linux Programmer's Manual                   ACOS(3)

NAME
       acos, acosf, acosl - arc cosine function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double acos(double x);
       float acosf(float x);
       long double acosl(long double x);

       Link with -lm.

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

       acosf(), acosl():
           _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
               || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
               || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION
       These  functions calculate the arc cosine of x; that is the value whose
       cosine is x.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, these functions return the arc cosine of x in radians;  the
       return value is in the range [0, pi].

       If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

       If x is +1, +0 is returned.

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

       If x is outside the range [-1, 1], a domain error occurs, and a NaN  is
       returned.

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 outside the range [-1, 1]
              errno is set  to  EDOM.   An  invalid  floating-point  exception
              (FE_INVALID) is raised.

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

       The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
