ACOS(3) Linux Programmer's Manual ACOS(3)

NAME

     acos, acosf, acosl - arc cosine function

SYNOPSIS

     #include <math.h>
     double acos(double x);
     float acosf(float x);
     long double acosl(long double x);
     Link with -lm.
 Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
     acosf(), acosl():
         _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
             || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
             || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION

     These  functions calculate the arc cosine of x; that is the value whose
     cosine is x.

RETURN VALUE

     On success, these functions return the arc cosine of x in radians;  the
     return value is in the range [0, pi].
     If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
     If x is +1, +0 is returned.
     If  x is positive infinity or negative infinity, a domain error occurs,
     and a NaN is returned.
     If x is outside the range [-1, 1], 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 outside the range [-1, 1]
            errno is set  to  EDOM.   An  invalid  floating-point  exception
            (FE_INVALID) is raised.

CONFORMING TO
