Calculates the inverse hyperbolic sine.

double asinh(  
   double x   
float asinh(  
   float x   
);  // C++ only  
long double asinh(  
   long double x  
);  // C++ only  
float asinhf(  
   float x   
long double asinhl(  
   long double x  


Floating-point value.

The asinh functions return the inverse hyberbolic sine (arc hyperbolic sine) of x. This function is valid over the floating-point domain. If x is a quiet NaN, indefinite, or infinity, the same value is returned.

When you use C++, you can call overloads of asinh that take and return float or long double values. In a C program, asinh always takes and returns double.
