NAMEtanh, tanhf, tanhl - hyperbolic tangent function
#include <math.h> double tanh(double x);
float tanhf(float x);
long double tanhl(long double x);
Link with -lm.
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

DESCRIPTIONThese functions return the hyperbolic tangent of x, which is defined mathematically as:
tanh(x) = sinh(x) / cosh(x)
RETURN VALUEOn success, these functions return the hyperbolic tangent 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), +1 (-1) is returned.
ERRORSNo errors occur.
