sinh, sinhf, sinhl - hyperbolic sine function
#include <math.h> double sinh(double x); float sinhf(float x); long double sinhl(long double x);
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
These functions return the hyperbolic sine of
x, which is
defined mathematically as:
sinh(x) = (exp(x) - exp(-x)) / 2
On success, these functions return the hyperbolic sine of
x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.
x is positive infinity (negative infinity), positive
infinity (negative infinity) is returned.
If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and the functions
return HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or
HUGE_VALL, respectively, with the same sign as
See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.
The following errors can occur:
errno is set to ERANGE. An overflow
floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.

The variant returning
double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD,
