The hypot() function returns sqrt(x*x+y*y). This is the length of the
hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle with sides of length x and y, or
the distance of the point (x,y) from the origin.
The calculation is performed without undue overflow or underflow during
the intermediate steps of the calculation.
On success, these functions return the length of a right-angled trian-
gle with sides of length x and y.
If x or y is an infinity, positive infinity is returned.
If x or y is a NaN, and the other argument is not an infinity, a NaN is
If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return
HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or HUGE_VALL, respectively.
If both arguments are subnormal, and the result is subnormal, a range
error occurs, and the correct result is returned.
See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error
has occurred when calling these functions.
The following errors can occur:
Range error: result overflow
errno is set to ERANGE. An overflow floating-point exception
(FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.
