NAME
     tan - tangent function

SYNOPSIS

     double
     tan(double x);

DESCRIPTION
     The tan() function computes the tangent of x (measured in radians).  A
     large magnitude argument may yield a result with little or no signifi-
     cance.  For a discussion of error due to roundoff, see math(3).

RETURN VALUES
     The tan() function returns the tangent value.

     sinh(3),  tanh(3),  math(3),

STANDARDS
     The tan() function conforms to ANSI C X3.159-1989 (``ANSI C '').
