tan

Returns the tangent of val.

Syntax:

GML Code Example

tan(val);


Argument Description
val The angle (in radians) to return the tangent of.


Returns: Real


Description

In a right angled triangle tan(val) = Opposite / Adjacent where val is one of the three angles.

NOTE: The value returned is in radians, not degrees.

Note: Pi/2, (3 pi/2), -pi/2 and a vast number of other values will error with this function due to their returning infinity, a graph representation of this would produce asymptotes at these values.


Example:

GML Code Example

val = tan( pi );

This will set val to 0.
