FMOD(3) 						   BSD Library Functions Manual 						   FMOD(3)

NAME
fmod, fmodf, fmodl -- floating-point remainder functions LIBRARY
Math Library (libm, -lm) SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> double fmod(double x, double y); float fmodf(float x, float y); long double fmodl(long double x, long double y); DESCRIPTION
The fmod(), fmodf(), and fmodl() functions compute the floating-point remainder of x/ y. RETURN VALUES
If y is non-zero, the fmod(), fmodf(), and fmodl() functions return the value x-i*y, for some integer i, such that the result has the same sign as x and magnitude less than the magnitude of y. If y is zero, a NaN is produced. SEE ALSO
math(3) STANDARDS
The fmod(), fmodf(), and fmodl() functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99''). BSD

NAME
fmod, drem, remainder - Compute the floating-point remainder LIBRARY
Math Library (libm.a) SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> double fmod (double x, double y); float fmodf (float x, float y); long double fmodl (long double x, long double y); double drem (double x, double y); float dremf (float x, float y); long double dreml (long double x, long double y); double remainder (double x, double y); float remainderf (float x, float y); long double remainderl (long double x, long double y); STANDARDS
Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry standards as follows: fmod(): XPG4 remainder(): XPG4-UNIX Refer to the standards(5) reference page for more information about industry standards and associated tags. DESCRIPTION
The fmod(), fmodf(), and fmodl() functions return the remainder r = x - n*y, where n = trunc(x/y). The result has the same sign as x and magnitude less than the magnitude of y. The remainder is computed exactly and |r| is less than |y|. The drem(), dremf(), dreml(), remainder(), remainderf(), and remainderl() functions return the remainder r = x - n*y, where n = rint(x/y). Additionally, if |n - x/y|=1/2, then n is even. The remainder is computed exactly and |r| is less than or equal to |y|/2. The drem() and remainder() functions are aliases of each other. The dremf(), and remainderf() functions are aliases of each other. The dreml() and remainderl() functions are aliases of each other.
