NAME

cos, cosf, cosl – cosine functions

CONTENTS

LIBRARY

Math Library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>

double
cos(double x);

float
cosf(float x);

long double
cosl(long double x);

DESCRIPTION

The cos(), cosf(), and cosl() functions compute the cosine of x (measured in radians). A large magnitude argument may yield a result with little or no significance. For a discussion of error due to roundoff, see math(3).

RETURN VALUES

The cos(), cosf(), and cosl() functions return the cosine value.

SEE ALSO

acos(3), asin(3), atan(3), atan2(3), ccos(3), cosh(3), math(3), sin(3), sinh(3), tan(3), tanh(3)

STANDARDS

These functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 ("ISO C99").

Our grievance is not just against Unix itself, but against the cult of Unix zealots who defend and nurture it. They take the heat, disease, and pestilence as givens, and, as ancient shamans did, display their wounds, some self-inflicted, as proof of their power and wizardry. We aim, through bluntness and humor, to show them that they pray to a tin god, and that science, not religion, is the path to useful and friendly technology.
