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

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.

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