These functions calculate the inverse hyperbolic tangent of
x; that is the value whose hyperbolic tangent is
On success, these functions return the inverse hyperbolic tangent of
x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.
x is +1 or -1, a pole error occurs, and the functions
return HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or
HUGE_VALL, respectively, with the mathematically
If the absolute value of
x is greater than 1, a domain error
occurs, and a NaN is returned.
See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.
The following errors can occur:
xless than -1 or greater than +1
errno is set to EDOM. An invalid
floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
xis +1 or -1
errno is set to ERANGE (but see BUGS). A
divide-by-zero floating-point exception (FE_DIVBYZERO)
