SYNOPSIS


.In math.h double acos double x float acosf float x

DESCRIPTION

The acos and the acosf functions compute the principal value of the arc cosine of x. A domain error occurs for arguments not in the range [-1, +1]. For a discussion of error due to roundoff, see math(3).

RETURN VALUES

The acos and the acosf functions return the arc cosine in the range [0, pi] radians. If:

| x | > 1,

acos x raises an invalid exception and returns an NaN.
