The atanh() function calculates the inverse hyperbolic tangent of x;
that is the value whose hyperbolic tangent is x.
On success, these functions return the inverse hyperbolic tangent of x.
If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.
If x is +1 or -1, a pole error occurs, and the functions return
HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or HUGE_VALL, respectively, with the mathemati‐
cally correct sign.
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:
Domain error: x less than -1 or greater than +1
errno is set to EDOM. An invalid floating-point exception
(FE_INVALID) is raised.
Pole error: x is +1 or -1
errno is set to ERANGE (but see BUGS). A divide-by-zero float‐
ing-point exception (FE_DIVBYZERO) is raised.
C99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4,
In glibc 2.9 and earlier, when a pole error occurs, errno as set to
EDOM instead of the POSIX-mandated ERANGE. Since version 2.10, glibc
does the right thing.
