tan, tanf, tanl, tanh, tanhf, tanhl

Calculates the tangent (tan, tanf, or tanl), or hyperbolic tangent (tanh, tanhf, or tanhl).

double tan(
   double x 
);
float tan(
   float x 
);  // C++ only
long double tan(
   long double x
);  // C++ only
float tanf(
   float x 
);
long double tanl(
   long double x
);
double tanh(
   double x 
);
float tanh(
   float x 
);  // C++ only
long double tanh(
   long double x
);  // C++ only
float tanhf(
   float x 
);
long double tanhl(
   long double x
);

x

Angle in radians.

The tan functions return the tangent of x. If x is greater than or equal to 263, or less than or equal to –263, a loss of significance in the result occurs.

The tanh functions return the hyperbolic tangent of x. There is no error return.

Because C++ allows overloading, you can call overloads of tan and tanh that take and return float or long double values. In a C program, tan and tanh always take and return double.
