DESCRIPTIONThe hypot() function returns sqrt( x* x+ y* y). This is the length of the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle with sides of length x and y, or the distance of the point ( x, y) from the origin.
RETURN VALUEOn success, these functions return the length of a right-angled triangle with sides of length x and y.
ERRORSSee math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.
The following errors can occur:
- Range error: result overflow
- errno is set to ERANGE. An overflow floating-point exception ( FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.
- Range error: result underflow
- An underflow floating-point exception ( FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised.
- These functions do not set errno for this case.
CONFORMING TOC99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD.
