asin, asinf

Calculate the arcsine.

double asin( 
   double x 
);
float asin(
   float x
);  // C++ only
long double asin(
   long double x
);  // C++ only
float asinf ( 
   float x 
);

x

Value whose arcsine is to be calculated.

The asin function returns the arcsine of x in the range –π/2 to π/2 radians.

If x is less than –1 or greater than 1, asin returns an indefinite by default.
