asin(3M)		Mathematical Library Functions		      asin(3M)

       asin, asinf, asinl - arc sine function

       c99 [ flag... ] file... -lm [ library... ]
       #include <math.h>

       double asin(double x);

       float asinf(float x);

       long double asinl(long double x);

       These  functions	 compute  the principal value of the arc sine of their
       argument x. The value of x should be in the range [−1,1].

       Upon successful completion, these functions return the arc sine of x in
       the range [−pi/2, pi/2] radians.

       For  finite  values of x not in the range [−1,1], a domain error occurs
       and a NaN is returned.

       If x is NaN, NaN is returned.

       If x is ±0, x is returned.

       If x is ±Inf, a domain error occurs and a NaN is returned.

       For exceptional cases, matherr(3M) tabulates the values to be  returned
       by asin() as specified by SVID3 and XPG3.

       These functions will fail if:

       Domain Error    The  x  argument is finite and not in the range [−1,1],
		       or is ±Inf.

		       If   the	  integer   expression	 (math_errhandling   &
		       MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, the invalid floating-point
		       exception is raised.

		       The asin() function sets errno to EDOM if x is not ±Inf
		       or NaN and is not in the range [−1,1].

       An  application	wanting to check for exceptions should call feclearex‐
       cept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before  calling  these  functions.  On  return,  if
       non-zero, an exception has been raised. An  application	should	either
       examine the return value or check the floating point exception flags to
       detect exceptions.

       An application can also set  errno  to  0  before  calling  asin().  On
       return,	if  errno  is non-zero, an error has occurred. The asinf() and
       asinl() functions do not set errno.
