Available in all subroutines.

Computes the sine of its argument x, measured in radians.


x - Floating point value representing an angle in radians.

Return Value

Upon successful completion, this function returns the sine of x.

If x is math.NAN, a NaN will be returned.

If x is ±0, x will be returned.

If x is math.POS_INFINITY or math.NEG_INFINITY, a domain error occurs and a NaN will be returned.

If x is subnormal, a range error occurs and x will be returned.
