ctan, ctanf, ctanl — complex tangent function


#include <complex.h>

double complex ctan(double complex z);
float complex ctanf(float complex z);
long double complex ctanl(long double complex z);

Link with -lm.


These functions calculate the complex tangent of z.

The complex tangent function is defined as:

    ctan(z) = csin(z) / ccos(z)


These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
