NAME
cos, cosf, cosl - cosine function
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h >
double cos(double x );
float cosf(float x );
long double cosl(long double x );
Link with -lm .

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see
feature_test_macros (7)):

cosf (),
cosl ():

_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or
cc -std=c99
DESCRIPTION
The
cos ()
function returns the cosine of x , where x is
given in radians.
RETURN VALUE
On success, these functions return the cosine of
x .
If
x
is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

If
x
is positive infinity or negative infinity,
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 an infinity
errno
is set to
EDOM
(but see BUGS).
An invalid floating-point exception
(FE_INVALID )
is raised.
CONFORMING TO
C99, POSIX.1-2001.
The variant returning
double
also conforms to
SVr4, 4.3BSD.
BUGS
Before version 2.10, the glibc implementation did not set
errno
to
EDOM
when a domain error occurred.
