FLMIN(3F)																 FLMIN(3F)

NAME
flmin, flmax, ffrac, dflmin, dflmax, dffrac, inmax - return extreme values SYNOPSIS
function flmin() function flmax() function ffrac() double precision function dflmin() double precision function dflmax() double precision function dffrac() function inmax() DESCRIPTION
Functions flmin and flmax return the minimum and maximum positive floating point values respectively. Functions dflmin and dflmax return the minimum and maximum positive double precision floating point values. Function inmax returns the maximum positive integer value. The functions ffrac and dffrac return the fractional accuracy of single and double precision floating point numbers respectively. This is the difference between 1.0 and the smallest real number greater than 1.0. These functions can be used by programs that must scale algorithms to the numerical range of the processor. FILES

NAME
intro - introduction to FORTRAN library functions DESCRIPTION
This section describes those functions that are in the Fortran run time library. The functions listed here provide an interface from f77 programs to the system in the same manner as the C library does for C programs. They are automatically loaded as needed by the Fortran compiler f77(1), except for the graphics interface routines. Those must be explicitly requested, see plot(3f). The math intrinsics required by the 1977 Fortran standard are available, although not described here. In addition, the abs, sqrt, exp, log, sin, and cos intrinsics have been extended for double complex values. They may be referenced using the generic names listed above, or they may be referenced using their specific names that consist of the generic names preceded by either cd or z. For example, if zz is dou- ble complex, then sqrt(zz), zsqrt(zz), or cdsqrt(zz) compute the square root of zz. The dcmplx intrinsic forms a double complex value from two double precision variables or expressions, and the name of the specific function for the conjugate of a double complex value is dconjg. Most of these functions are in libU77.a. Some are in libF77.a or libI77.a. A few intrinsic functions are described for the sake of com- pleteness. For efficiency, the SCCS ID strings are not normally included in the a.out file. To include them, simply declare external f77lid in any f77 module. LIST OF FUNCTIONS
