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

NAME

     sincos, sincosf, sincosl - calculate sin and cos simultaneously

SYNOPSIS

     #define _GNU_SOURCE         /* See feature_test_macros(7) */
     #include <math.h>
     void sincos(double x, double *sin, double *cos);
     void sincosf(float x, float *sin, float *cos);
     void sincosl(long double x, long double *sin, long double *cos);
     Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION

     Several  applications  need sine and cosine of the same angle x.  These
     functions compute both at the same time, and store the results in  *sin
     and  *cos.  Using this function can be more efficient than two separate
     calls to sin(3) and cos(3).
     If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned in *sin and *cos.
     If x is positive infinity or negative infinity, a domain error  occurs,
     and a NaN is returned in *sin and *cos.

RETURN VALUE

     These functions return void.

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.

VERSIONS

     These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

CONFORMING TO

     These functions are GNU extensions.

NOTES

     To see the performance advantage of sincos(), it may  be  necessary  to
     disable gcc(1) built-in optimizations, using flags such as:
         cc -O -lm -fno-builtin prog.c
