# DESCRIPTION

This module exports the missing inverse and hyperbolic trigonometric functions of real numbers. The inverse functions return values cooresponding to the principal values. Specifying an argument outside of the domain of the function where an illegal divion by zero would occur will cause infinity to be returned. Infinity is Perl's version of this.

This module implements the functions in radians by default. You set the units via the units sub:

```    # set radians as units (default)
# set degrees as units
Math::Trig::Units::units('degrees');
# return current unit setting
\$units = Math::Trig::Units::units();```

To avoid redefining the internal sin() and cos() functions this module calls the functions dsin() and dcos().

### units( [UNITS] )

Set or get the units. Options are 'radians', 'degrees', 'gradians' and are case insensitive. When called without an argument this function returns the current units setting. Alternatively you can call the subclasses:

```    Math::Trig::Degree
