# fminf(3) [freebsd man page]

```FMAX(3) 						   BSD Library Functions Manual 						   FMAX(3)

NAME
fmax, fmaxf, fmaxl, fmin, fminf, fminl -- floating-point maximum and minimum functions

LIBRARY
Math Library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>

double
fmax(double x, double y);

float
fmaxf(float x, float y);

long double
fmaxl(long double x, long double y);

double
fmin(double x, double y);

float
fminf(float x, float y);

long double
fminl(long double x, long double y);

DESCRIPTION
The fmax(), fmaxf(), and fmaxl() functions return the larger of x and y, and likewise, the fmin(), fminf(), and fminl() functions return the
smaller of x and y.  They treat +0.0 as being larger than -0.0.  If one argument is an NaN, then the other argument is returned.  If both
arguments are NaNs, then the result is an NaN.  These routines do not raise any floating-point exceptions.

fabs(3), fdim(3), math(3)

STANDARDS
The fmax(), fmaxf(), fmaxl(), fmin(), fminf(), and fminl() functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99'').

HISTORY
These routines first appeared in FreeBSD 5.3.
