Linux 2.6 - man page for floorf (linux 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  maximum
       value  of  the exponent is 128 (respectively, 1024), and the number of mantissa bits is 24
       (respectively, 53).)
