NAME

       sincos, sincosf, sincosl - calculate sin and cos simultaneously

SYNOPSIS

       #define _GNU_SOURCE         /* See feature_test_macros(7) */
       #include <math.h>

       void sincos(double x, double *sin, double *cos);
       void sincosf(float x, float *sin, float *cos);
       void sincosl(long double x, long double *sin, long double *cos);

       Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION

       Several  applications  need  sine and cosine of the same angle x.  These functions compute
       both at the same time, and store the results in *sin and *cos.  Using this function can be
       more efficient than two separate calls to sin(3) and cos(3).

       If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned in *sin and *cos.

       If  x  is  positive  infinity  or  negative  infinity, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is
       returned in *sin and *cos.

RETURN VALUE

       These functions return void.

ERRORS

       See 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
              An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.

       These functions do not set errno.

VERSIONS

       These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

CONFORMING TO

       These functions are GNU extensions.

NOTES

       To see the performance advantage of sincos(), it may be necessary to disable gcc(1) built-
       in optimizations, using flags such as:

           cc -O -lm -fno-builtin prog.c
