NAME

sincos, sincosf, sincosl – sine and cosine functions

CONTENTS

LIBRARY

Math Library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>

void
sincos(double x, double *s, double *c);

void
sincosf(float x, float *s, float *c);

void
sincosl(long double x, long double *s, long double *c);

DESCRIPTION

The sincos(), sincosf(), and sincosl() functions compute the sine and cosine of x. Using these functions allows argument reduction to occur only once instead of twice with individual invocations of sin() and cos(). Like sin() and cos(), a large magnitude argument may yield a result with little or no significance.

RETURN VALUES

Upon returning from sincos(), sincosf(), and sincosl(), the memory pointed to by *s and *c are assigned the values of sine and cosine, respectively.

SEE ALSO

cos(3), sin(3),

HISTORY

These functions were added to FreeBSD 9.0 to aid in writing various complex function contained in ISO/IEC 9899:1999 ("ISO C99").

The most horrifying thing about Unix is that, no matter how many times you hit yourself over the head with it, you never quite manage to lose consciousness. It just goes on and on.
