sincos, sincosf, sincosl - calculate sin and cos simultaneously
#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);
Several applications need sine and cosine of the same angle
x. These functions compute both at the same time, and store the
*cos. Using this function can be
more efficient than two separate calls to sin(3) and
x is a NaN, a NaN is returned in
x is positive infinity or negative infinity, a domain
error occurs, and a NaN is returned in
These functions return
See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.
The following errors can occur:
xis an infinity
errno is set to EDOM (but see BUGS). An

These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
These functions are GNU extensions.
Before version 2.22, the glibc implementation did not set
errno to EDOM when a domain error
