 Defined in header  float       sinpif( float arg ); (1) (since C23) double      sinpi( double arg ); (2) (since C23) long double sinpil( long double arg ); (3) (since C23) _Decimal32  sinpid32( _Decimal32 arg ); (4) (since C23) _Decimal64  sinpid64( _Decimal64 arg ); (5) (since C23) _Decimal128 sinpid128( _Decimal128 arg ); (6) (since C23) Defined in header  #define sinpi( arg ) (7) (since C23)
1-6) Computes the sine of π·arg measured in radians, thus regarding arg as a measurement in half-revolutions.
7) Type-generic macro: calls the correct function based on the type of arg. If the argument has integer type, (2) is called.
 The functions (4-6) are declared if and only if the implementation predefines __STDC_IEC_60559_DFP__ (i.e. the implementation supports decimal floating-point numbers). (since C23)

## Contents

### Parameters

 arg - floating-point value whose product with π represents an angle in radians

### Return value

If no errors occur, the sine of π·arg (sin(π×arg)) in the range [-1, +1], is returned.

### Error handling

Errors are reported as specified in math_errhandling.

If the implementation supports IEEE floating-point arithmetic (IEC 60559):

• if the argument is ±0, it is returned unmodified;
• if the argument is ±∞, NaN is returned and FE_INVALID is raised;
• if the argument is NaN, NaN is returned.

### Example

#include <errno.h>
#include <fenv.h>
#include <math.h>
#include <stdio.h>

#ifndef __GNUC__
#pragma STDC FENV_ACCESS ON
#endif

#if __STDC_VERSION__ < 202311L
// A naive implementation of a subset of sinpi family
double sinpi(double arg)
{
return sin(arg * (double)3.1415926535897932384626433);
}
#endif

int main(void)
{
const double pi = acos(-1);

// typical usage
printf("sinpi(1) = %f, sin(pi) = %f\n", sinpi(1), sin(pi));
printf("sinpi(0.5) = %f, sin(pi/2) = %f\n", sinpi(0.5), sin(pi / 2));
printf("sinpi(-0.75) = %f, sin(-3*pi/4) = %f\n", sinpi(-0.75), sin(-3 * pi / 4));

// special values
printf("sinpi(+0) = %f\n", sinpi(0.0));
printf("sinpi(-0) = %f\n", sinpi(-0.0));

// error handling
feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT);
printf("sinpi(INFINITY) = %f\n", sinpi(INFINITY));
if (fetestexcept(FE_INVALID))
puts("    FE_INVALID raised");
}

Possible output:

sinpi(1) = 0.000000, sin(pi) = 0.000000
sinpi(0.5) = 1.000000, sin(pi/2) = 1.000000
sinpi(-0.75) = -0.707107, sin(-3*pi/4) = -0.707107
sinpi(+0) = 0.000000
sinpi(-0) = -0.000000
sinpi(INFINITY) = -nan
FE_INVALID raised
