CentOS 7.0 - man page for floorf (centos section 3)

FLOOR(3)				      Linux Programmer's Manual 				     FLOOR(3)

NAME
floor, floorf, floorl - largest integral value not greater than argument
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> double floor(double x); float floorf(float x); long double floorl(long double x); Link with -lm. Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): floorf(), floorl(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L; or cc -std=c99
DESCRIPTION
These functions return the largest integral value that is not greater than x. For example, floor(0.5) is 0.0, and floor(-0.5) is -1.0.
RETURN VALUE
These functions return the floor of x. If x is integral, +0, -0, NaN, or an infinity, x itself is returned.
ERRORS
No errors occur. POSIX.1-2001 documents a range error for overflows, but see NOTES.
ATTRIBUTES
Multithreading (see pthreads(7)) The floor(), floorf(), and floorl() functions are thread-safe.
CONFORMING TO
C99, POSIX.1-2001. The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
NOTES
SUSv2 and POSIX.1-2001 contain text about overflow (which might set errno to ERANGE, or raise an FE_OVERFLOW exception). In practice, the result cannot overflow on any current machine, so this error-handling stuff is just nonsense. (More precisely, overflow can happen only when the maximum value of the exponent is smaller than the number of mantissa bits. For the IEEE-754 standard 32-bit and 64-bit floating-point numbers the max- imum value of the exponent is 128 (respectively, 1024), and the number of mantissa bits is 24 (respectively, 53).)
