NAME

       sinh, sinhf, sinhl - hyperbolic sine function

SYNOPSIS

       #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():
           _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
               || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
               || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION

       These functions return the hyperbolic sine of x, which is defined mathematically as:

           sinh(x) = (exp(x) - exp(-x)) / 2

RETURN VALUE

       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.

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:

       Range error: result overflow
              errno is set to ERANGE.  An  overflow  floating-point  exception  (FE_OVERFLOW)  is
              raised.

CONFORMING TO

       C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

       The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
