Actually, I take back my answer. I don't know the header of sine; it could have a header like:

sine(x,y,r,theta,sin,cos,tan)

where:

sin = y/r cos = x/r tan = y/x

etc.

In that case, the function you gave above is just the set of real numbers or whatever lame approximation of the reals we are using. Received on Thu Mar 06 2008 - 23:17:23 CET
