`TANH`

— Hyperbolic tangent function*Description*:`TANH(X)`

computes the hyperbolic tangent of`X`.*Standard*:- Fortran 77 and later, for a complex argument Fortran 2008 or later
*Class*:- Elemental function
*Syntax*:`X = TANH(X)`

*Arguments*:-
`X`The type shall be `REAL`

or`COMPLEX`

. *Return value*:- The return value has same type and kind as
`X`. If`X`is complex, the imaginary part of the result is in radians. If`X`is`REAL`

, the return value lies in the range - 1 \leq tanh(x) \leq 1 . *Example*:-
program test_tanh real(8) :: x = 2.1_8 x = tanh(x) end program test_tanh

*Specific names*:-
Name Argument Return type Standard `TANH(X)`

`REAL(4) X`

`REAL(4)`

Fortran 95 and later `DTANH(X)`

`REAL(8) X`

`REAL(8)`

Fortran 95 and later *See also*:- ATANH
