`ACOSD`

— Arccosine function, degrees ¶*Description*:`ACOSD(X)`

computes the arccosine of`X`in degrees (inverse of`COSD(X)`

).*Standard*:Fortran 2023

*Class*:Elemental function

*Syntax*:`RESULT = ACOSD(X)`

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

with a magnitude that is less than or equal to one.*Return value*:The return value is of the same type and kind as

`X`. The real part of the result is in degrees and lies in the range*0 \leq \Re \acos(x) \leq 180*.*Example*:program test_acosd real(8) :: x = 0.866_8 x = acosd(x) end program test_acosd
