Description: | Produces the sine of X. | ||
Class: | Elemental function; Generic | ||
Arguments: | X must be of type real or complex. It must be in radians and is treated as modulo 2*pi. (If X is of type complex, its real part is regarded as a value in radians.) | ||
Results: | The result type is the same as X. |
Specific Name | Argument Type | Result Type |
---|---|---|
SIN | REAL(4) | REAL(4) |
