 Defined in header `` float complex       ccosf( float complex z ); (since C99) double complex      ccos( double complex z ); (since C99) long double complex ccosl( long double complex z ); (since C99)

Computes the complex cosine of `z`.

## Contents

### Parameters

 z - complex argument

### Return value

The complex cosine of `z`.

### Example

```#include <stdio.h>
#include <complex.h>
#include <math.h>

#define PI acos(-1)

int main(void)
{
double complex z;
double x;

/* Print familiar values. */
int ndx;
printf("            cos(x)          ccos(z)\n");
printf("           --------    ------------------\n");
for (ndx=0;ndx<9;ndx++) {
x = ndx*0.25*PI;
z = x+0.0*I;
z = ccos(z);
printf("%.2f*PI   %9f   %9f%+fi\n", ndx*0.25,cos(x),creal(z),cimag(z));
}

return 0;
}```

Output:

```cos(x)          ccos(z)
