In addition sufficient additional overloads of the double versions of the above functions are provided, so that calling the function with any mixture of float, double, long double, or integer arguments is supported, with the return type determined by the result type calculation rules.

For example:

acoshf(2.0f);  // float version, returns float.
acosh(2.0f);   // also calls the float version and returns float.
acosh(2.0);    // double version, returns double.
acoshl(2.0L);  // long double version, returns a long double.
acosh(2.0L);   // also calls the long double version.
acosh(2);      // integer argument is treated as a double, returns double.
Quick Reference

More detailed descriptions of these functions are available in the C99 standard.

typedef unspecified float_t;
typedef unspecified double_t;

In this implementation float_t is the same as type float, and double_t the same as type double unless the preprocessor symbol FLT_EVAL_METHOD is defined, in which case these are set as follows:

FLT_EVAL_METHOD

float_t

double_t

0

float

double

1

double

double

2

long double

long double

double acosh(double x);
