NAME
       modf, modff, modfl - decompose a floating-point number

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double modf(double x, double *iptr);
       float modff(float value, float *iptr);
       long double modfl(long double value, long double *iptr);

DESCRIPTION
       These  functions  shall	break  the argument x into integral and fractional parts, each of
       which has the same sign as the argument. It stores the integral part as a double (for  the
       modf()  function),  a  float (for the modff() function), or a long double (for the modfl()
       function), in the object pointed to by iptr.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, these functions shall return the signed fractional part of x.

       If x is NaN, a NaN shall be returned, and *iptr shall be set to a NaN.

       If x is +-Inf, +-0 shall be returned, and *iptr shall be set to +-Inf.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       The modf() function computes the function result and *iptr such that:

	      a = modf(x, iptr) ;
	      x == a+*iptr ;

       allowing for the usual floating-point inaccuracies.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
