Prototype

double acos(double x);

long double acosl(long double x);

Description

Calculates the arc cosine.

acos returns the arc cosine of the input value.

acosl is the long double version; it takes a long double argument and returns a long double result.

Arguments to acos and acosl must be in the range -1 to 1, or else acos and acosl return NAN and set the global variable errno to:

EDOM Domain error

Return Value

acos and acosl of an argument between -1 and +1 return a value in the range 0 to pi. Error handling for these routines can be modified through the functions _matherr_matherr and _matherrl.

Example



 #include <stdio.h>
 #include <math.h>
 int main(void)
 {
   double result;
   double x = 0.5;
   result = acos(x);
   printf("The arc cosine of %lf is %lf\n", x, result);
   return 0;
 }
