Hyperbolic sine function
#include <math.h> double sinh(double x); float sinhf(float x); long double sinhl(long double x);
Link with -lm.
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
sinhf(), sinhl():
_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99
The sinh() function returns the hyperbolic sine of x, which is defined mathematically as:
sinh(x) = (exp(x) - exp(-x)) / 2
On success, these functions return the hyperbolic sine 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), positive infinity (negative infinity) is returned.
If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or HUGE_VALL, respectively, with the same sign as x.
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.
C99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
