NAME

acosh, acoshf, acoshl – inverse hyperbolic cosine functions

CONTENTS

LIBRARY

Math Library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>

double
acosh(double x);

float
acoshf(float x);

long double
acoshl(long double x);

DESCRIPTION

The acosh(), acoshf(), and acoshl() functions compute the inverse hyperbolic cosine of the real argument x. For a discussion of error due to roundoff, see math(3).

RETURN VALUES

These functions return the inverse hyperbolic cosine of x. If the argument is less than 1, acosh() raises an invalid exception and returns an NaN.

SEE ALSO

asinh(3), atanh(3), exp(3), fenv(3), math(3)

HISTORY

The acosh(), acoshf(), and acoshl() functions appeared in BSD 4.3, FreeBSD 2.0, and FreeBSD 10.0, respectively.

Today, the Unix equivalent of a power drill would have 20 dials and switches, come with a nonstandard plug, require the user to hand-wind the motor coil, and not accept 3/8" or 7/8" drill bits (though this would be documented in the BUGS section of its instruction manual).
