.Dt TAN 3 | |

.Os | |

.Sh NAME | |

.Nm tan , | |

.Nm tanf | |

.Nd tangent functions | |

.Sh LIBRARY | |

.Lb libm | |

.Sh SYNOPSIS | |

.In math.h | |

.Ft double | |

.Fn tan "double x" | |

.Ft float | |

.Fn tanf "float x" | |

.Sh DESCRIPTION | |

The | |

.Fn tan | |

and the | |

.Fn tanf | |

functions compute the tangent of | |

.Fa x | |

(measured in radians). | |

A large magnitude argument may yield a result | |

with little or no significance. | |

For a discussion of error due to roundoff, see | |

.Xr math 3 . | |

.Sh RETURN VALUES | |

The | |

.Fn tan | |

function returns the tangent value. | |
