DESCRIPTION
       These  functions  return  sqrt(x*x+y*y).   This  is  the  length of the
       hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle with sides of length x and y,  or
       the distance of the point (x,y) from the origin.

       The calculation is performed without undue overflow or underflow during
       the intermediate steps of the calculation.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, these functions return the length of a right-angled  trian-
       gle with sides of length x and y.

       If x or y is an infinity, positive infinity is returned.

       If x or y is a NaN, and the other argument is not an infinity, a NaN is
       returned.

       If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return
       HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or HUGE_VALL, respectively.

       If  both  arguments are subnormal, and the result is subnormal, a range
       error occurs, and the correct result 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:

       Range error: result overflow
              errno  is  set  to ERANGE.  An overflow floating-point exception
              (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.

       Range error: result underflow
              An underflow floating-point exception (FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised.

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

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