```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.

math(3)

STANDARDS
The fmod(), fmodf(), and fmodl() functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99'').

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

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.

The following table describes function behavior in response to exceptional arguments:

## The Whole Story on #! /usr/bin/ksh

Introduction Originally, we only had one shell on unix. When ran a command, the shell would attempt to invoke one of the exec() system calls on it. It the command was an executable, the exec would succeed and the command would run. If the exec() failed, the shell would not give up, instead it...

## Unix File Permissions

Introduction I have seen some misinformation regarding Unix file permissions. I will try to set the record straight. Take a look at this example of some output from ls: \$ ls -ld /usr/bin /usr/bin/cat drwxrwxr-x 3 root bin 8704 Sep 23 2004 /usr/bin -r-xr-xr-x 1 bin bin ...

## Memory Leaks

Suppose I have a main() function with only one malloc statement allocating say some 1 gb memory. Also say my system has 1 gb of ram. main() { malloc(1gb) return(0) } The program above exits without freeing the memory. In this case will the 1 gb of heap memory be returned...

## Scripts without shebang

I see lot of ad-hoc shell scripts in our servers which don't have a shebang at the beginning . Does this mean that it will run on any shell ? Is it a good practice to create scripts (even ad-hoc ones) without shebang ?

## Is UNIX an open source OS ?

## UNIX Environment Setup - (Just starting!)

## Is it safe to install x86 Solaris 10 U6 after installed-Linux-and-FreeBSD?

I've installed Slack 14.2 on /dev/sda1 (/dev/sda2 is swap) and FreeBSD 12 on /dev/sda3 and lilo is the boot manager. FreeBSD slices are as follows; / on /dev/ada0S3a, swap on /dev/ada0s3e, /var on /dev/ada0s3b, /tmp on /dev/ada0s3d and /usr on /dev/ada0s3f. I hesitate to install Solaris 10...
