double sin(double x );
float sinf(float x );
long double sinl(long double x );

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

sinf (),
sinl ():

_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or
cc -std=c99
DESCRIPTION
The
sin () function returns the sine of x , where x is
given in radians.
RETURN VALUE
On success, these functions return the sine of
x .
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.

ERRORS
See
math_error (7)
for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred
when calling these functions.
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.

CONFORMING TO
C99, POSIX.1-2001.
The variant returning
double also conforms to
SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
BUGS
Before version 2.10, the glibc implementation did not set
errno to
EDOM when a domain error occurred.
