HYPOT(3)		   Linux Programmer's Manual		      HYPOT(3)

NAME
       hypot, hypotf, hypotl - Euclidean distance function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double hypot(double x, double y);
       float hypotf(float x, float y);
       long double hypotl(long double x, long double y);

       Link with -lm.

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

       hypot():
	   _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
	   _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	   or cc -std=c99
       hypotf(), hypotl():
	   _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 ||
	   _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	   or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION
       The  hypot() function returns sqrt(x*x+y*y).  This is the length of the
       hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle with sides of length x and y,  or
       the distance of the point (x,y) from the origin.

       The calculation is performed without undue overflow or underflow during
       the intermediate steps of the calculation.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, these functions return the length of a right-angled	trianā€
       gle with sides of length x and y.

       If x or y is an infinity, positive infinity is returned.

       If x or y is a NaN, and the other argument is not an infinity, a NaN is
       returned.

       If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return
       HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or HUGE_VALL, respectively.

       If  both	 arguments are subnormal, and the result is subnormal, a range
       error occurs, and the correct result is returned.

ERRORS
       See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an	 error
       has occurred when calling these functions.

       The following errors can occur:

       Range error: result overflow
	      errno  is	 set  to ERANGE.  An overflow floating-point exception
	      (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.

       Range error: result underflow
	      An underflow floating-point exception (FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised.

	      These functions do not set errno for this case.

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001.  The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4,
       4.3BSD.
