Linux 2.6 - man page for fmod (linux section 3posix)

FMOD(P) 			    POSIX Programmer's Manual				  FMOD(P)

NAME
       fmod, fmodf, fmodl - floating-point remainder value 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);

DESCRIPTION
       These functions shall return the floating-point remainder of the division of x by y.

       An  application	wishing  to  check for error situations should set errno to zero and call
       feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling these functions.  On return, if errno is  non-
       zero  or fetestexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_DIVBYZERO | FE_OVERFLOW | FE_UNDERFLOW) is non-zero,
       an error has occurred.

RETURN VALUE
       These functions shall 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.

       If  the	correct  value would cause underflow, and is not representable, a range error may
       occur, and    either 0.0 (if supported), or   an  implementation-defined  value	shall  be
       returned.

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

       If y is zero, a domain error shall occur, and either a NaN (if supported), or an implemen-
       tation-defined value shall be returned.

       If x is infinite, a domain error shall occur, and either  a  NaN  (if  supported),  or  an
       implementation-defined value shall be returned.

       If x is +-0 and y is not zero, +-0 shall be returned.

       If x is not infinite and y is +-Inf, x shall be returned.

       If  the correct value would cause underflow, and is representable, a range error may occur
       and the correct value shall be returned.

ERRORS
       These functions shall fail if:

       Domain Error
	      The x argument is infinite or y is zero.

       If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is non-zero, then errno shall be
       set  to [EDOM]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero,
       then the invalid floating-point exception shall be raised.

       These functions may fail if:

       Range Error
	      The result underflows.

       If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is non-zero, then errno shall be
       set  to	[ERANGE].  If  the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-
       zero, then the underflow floating-point exception shall be raised.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       On  error,  the	expressions  (math_errhandling	&  MATH_ERRNO)	and  (math_errhandling	&
       MATH_ERREXCEPT) are independent of each other, but at least one of them must be non-zero.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
