# fmodl(3) [freebsd man page]

```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 -- floating-point remainder function

SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>

double
fmod(double x, double y);

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

float
fmodf(float x, float y);

DESCRIPTION
The fmod() functions compute the floating-point remainder of x/ y.

Specifically, the functions return the value x-i*y, for some integer i such that, if y is non-zero, the result has the same sign as x and
magnitude less than the magnitude of y.

SPECIAL VALUES
fmod(+-0, y) returns +-0 if y is neither 0 nor NaN.

fmod(x, y) returns a NaN and raises the "invalid" floating-point exception for x infinite or y zero.

fmod(x, +-infinity) returns x for x not infinite.

VECTOR OPERATIONS
If you need to apply the fmod() functions to SIMD vectors or arrays, using the following functions provided by the Accelerate.framework may
give significantly better performance:

#include <Accelerate/Accelerate.h>

vFloat vfmodf(vFloat x, vFloat y);
void vvfmodf(float *z, const float *y, const float *x, const int *n);
void vvfmod(double *z, const double *y, const double *x, const int *n);

math(3)

STANDARDS
The fmod() functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:2011.

## Checking which arguments are supplied

I have written this C++ program and I am using getopt_long and want to chech when the user supplies the arguments so that I can put a default or otherwise. Currently I am using hasargv or Pc.get_string("key",s), Pc.get_real("key",s), etc to detect whether the user supplied a value. For...

I am using ifstream to open a file using std::fstream::open void open ( const char * filename, ios_base::openmode mode = ios_base::in ); However I want to use a string instead of a char* as follows but having a problem on how to do this string val_ifmodl = �fred.modl� ifstream ifs_modl;...

## Input arguments with C++

I am using getopt_long to pass arguments to a C++ program. Arguments are passed with a key and a value separated by a space of '=' sign. Some options do not need to assign a value to them. Example: ./raytrac dist=0.3 --color I have some classes that need to use some of these...
