cosh, coshf, coshl - hyperbolic cosine function


   #include <math.h>

   double cosh(double x);
   float coshf(float x);
   long double coshl(long double x);

   Link with -lm.

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

   coshf(), coshl():
       _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
           || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
           || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE


   These  functions  return  the  hyperbolic cosine of x, which is defined
   mathematically as:

       cosh(x) = (exp(x) + exp(-x)) / 2


   On success, these functions return the hyperbolic cosine of x.

   If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

   If x is +0 or -0, 1 is returned.

   If x is positive infinity or negative infinity,  positive  infinity  is

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


   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.

   C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

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


   In   glibc  version  2.3.4  and  earlier,  an  overflow  floating-point
   (FE_OVERFLOW) exception is not raised when an overflow occurs.
