|TAN(3)||Linux Programmer's Manual||TAN(3)|
double tan(double x); float tanf(float x); long double tanl(long double x);
Link with -lm.
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If x is positive infinity or negative infinity, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.
If the correct result would overflow, a range error occurs, and the functions return HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or HUGE_VALL, respectively, with the mathematically correct sign.
The following errors can occur:
- Domain error: x is an infinity
- errno is set to EDOM (but see BUGS). An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
- Range error: result overflow
- An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.

The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
