NAME
       fmod, fmodf, fmodl - floating-point remainder function

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);

       Link with -lm.

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       fmodf(), fmodl():
	   _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
	   _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	   or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION
       The fmod() function computes the floating-point remainder of dividing x by y.  The  return
       value is x - n * y, where n is the quotient of x / y, rounded toward zero to an integer.

RETURN VALUE
       On  success,  these  functions return the value x - n*y, for some integer n, such that the
       returned value has the same sign as x and a magnitude less than the magnitude of y.

       If x or y is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

       If x is an infinity, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.

       If y is zero, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.

       If x is +0 (-0), and y is not zero, +0 (-0) is returned.

ERRORS
       See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has  occurred  when
       calling these functions.

       The following errors can occur:

       Domain error: x is an infinity
	      errno  is  set  to  EDOM	(but  see  BUGS).   An	invalid  floating-point exception
	      (FE_INVALID) is raised.

       Domain error: y is zero
	      errno is set to EDOM.  An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001.  The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.

BUGS
       Before version 2.10, the glibc implementation did not set errno	to  EDOM  when	a  domain
       error occurred for an infinite x.
