DESCRIPTIONThese functions return the tangent of x, where x is given in radians.
RETURN VALUEOn success, these functions return the tangent of x.
If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If x is positive infinity or negative infinity, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.
If the correct result would overflow, a range error occurs, and the functions return HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or HUGE_VALL, respectively, with the mathematically correct sign.
ERRORSSee math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.
The following errors can occur:
- Domain error: x is an infinity
- errno is set to EDOM (but see BUGS). An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
- Range error: result overflow
- An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.
