NAME

cos, cosf, cosl - cosine function  

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>

double cos(double x);

float cosf(float x);
long double cosl(long double x);

Link with -lm.

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

cosf(), cosl(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE; or cc -std=c99  

DESCRIPTION

The cos() function returns the cosine of x, where x is given in radians.  

RETURN VALUE

On success, these functions return the cosine 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.  

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.  

CONFORMING TO

C99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD.
