TanH()

TanH()

Hyperbolic Tangent of the argument

Syntax

      TANH( nArea ) -> nHyperbolicTangent

Arguments

<nArea> the size of the area (see below)

Returns

<nHyperbolicTangent> the hyperbolic tangent of <nArea>

Description

The function TANH() calculates the hyperbolic tangent of the argument. In analytical mathematics it is defined as SINH(x)/COSH(x).

Examples

      ? tanh( 0.0 ) // --> 0.0
      ? tanh( 1.0 ) // --> 0.7615...

Tests

      tanh( 0.0 ) == 0.0
      tanh( -0.5 ) == -tanh( 0.5 )

Compliance

TANH() is new in Harbours CT3’s library.

TAN()

TAN()

Tangent of the argument

Syntax

      TAN( nRadiant ) -> nTangent

Arguments

<nRadiant> an angle size given in radiants

Returns

<nTangent> the tangent of <nRadiant>

Description

The function TAN() calculates the tangent of an angle whose size is given in radiants (full angle equals 2*Pi – see DTOR() for angle size given in degress). A common geometric interpretation of the TAN() function is the counterkathede-ankathede-ratio of a right-angled triangle, or, tan(x) = sin(x)/cos(x).

Examples

      ? tan( 0.0 ) // --> 0.0
      ? tan( 1.0 ) // --> 1.5574...

Tests

      tan( 0.0 ) == 0.0
      tan( PI() / 4 ) == 1
      tan( PI() ) == 0.0

Compliance

TAN() is compatible with CT3’s TAN().

SINH()

SINH()

Hyperbolic Sine of the argument

Syntax

      SINH( nArea ) -> nHyperbolicSine

Arguments

<nArea> the size of the area (see below)

Returns

<nHyperbolicSine> the hyperbolic sine of <nArea>

Description

The function SINH() calculates the hyperbolic sine of the argument. In analytical mathematics it is defined as 1/2*(exp(nArea)-exp(-nArea)). A common geometric interpretation of the SINH() function is the maximum y value of the points in the area with the given size <nArea>, that is bound by the x axis, a straight line through the point of origin (this one is fixed by the area) and the hyperbola xˆ2-yˆ2=1.

Examples

      ? sinh( 0.0 ) // --> 0.0
      ? sinh( 1.0 ) // --> 1.1752...

Tests

      sinh( 0.0 ) == 0.0
      sinh( -0.5 ) == -sinh( 0.5 )

SIN()

SIN()

Sine of the argument

Syntax

      SIN (nRadiant) -> nSine

Arguments

<nRadiant> an angle size given in radiants

Returns

<nSine> the sine of <nRadiant>

Description

The function SIN() calculates the sine of an angle whose size is given in radiants (full angle equals 2*Pi – see DTOR() for angle size given in degress). A common geometric interpretation of the SIN() function is the counterkathede-hypotenuse-ratio of a right-angled triangle.

Examples

      ? sin( 0.0 ) // --> 0.0
      ? sin( 1.0 ) // --> 0.8414...

Tests

      sin( 0.0 ) == 0.0
      sin( PI() / 4 ) == sqrt( 1 / 2 )
      sin( PI() / 2 ) == 1.0
      sin( PI() ) == 0.0

SIN() is compatible with CT3’s SIN().

SIGN()

SIGN()

Sign of a number

Syntax

      SIGN( <nNumber> ) -> nSign

Arguments

<nNumber> a number

Returns

<nSign> sign of <nNumber>

Description

The function SIGN() determines the sign of <nNumber>. If <nNumber> is > 0, then SIGN(<nNumber>) returns 1 If <nNumber> is < 0, then SIGN(<nNumber>) returns -1 If <nNumber> is == 0, then SIGN(<nNumber>) returns 0

Examples

      ? sign( 1.1 )   // --> 1
      ? sign( -1.1 )  // --> -1
      ? sign( 0.0 )   // --> 0

Tests

      sign( 1.1 )  == 1
      sign( -1.1 ) == -1
      sign( 0.0 )  == 0

SIGN() is compatible with CT3’s SIGN().

INFINITY()

INFINITY()

Returns the largest floating point number available in the system

Syntax

      INFINITY( [<lPlatformIndependant>] ) --> nLargestNumber

Arguments

[<lPlatformIndependant>] .T., if the function should return the maximum floating point value available (DBL_MAX) .F., function should try to return the same value as the original CT3 lib did Default: .F.

Returns

<nLargestNumber> the largest floating point number available in the system

Description

INFINITY() returns the largest floating point number available in the system. For platform independance, this is set to DBL_MAX.

Compliance

INFINITY() must not necessarily return the same number as CT3’s INFINITY().

RTOD()

RTOD()

Convert radiant to degree

Syntax

      RTOD( nRadiant ) -> nDegree

Arguments

<nRadiant> the size of an angle in radiant

Returns

<nDegree> the size of that angle in degree

Description

The function RTOD() can be used to convert sizes of angles given in radiant (like those returned by the asin, acos or atan function) to degrees that are commonly used geometry and technics.

Examples

      ? rtod( PI() ) // --> 180
      ? tanh( PI() / 3 ) // --> 60

Tests

      rtod( 0.0 ) == 0.0
      rtod( PI() ) == 180.0

Compliance

RTOD() is compatible with CT3’s RTOD().
