```
#include <math.h>
double sin(double x);
float sinf(float x);
long double sinl(long double x);
```

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

These functions return the sine of `x`

, where `x`

is
given in radians.

On success, these functions return the sine 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.

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.

For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).

C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

The variant returning `double`

also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD,
C89.

Before version 2.10, the glibc implementation did not set
`errno`

to **EDOM** when a domain error
occurred.
