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

NAME
       remquo, remquof, remquol - remainder functions

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double remquo(double x, double y, int *quo);
       float remquof(float x, float y, int *quo);
       long double remquol(long double x, long double y, int *quo);

DESCRIPTION
       The  remquo(),  remquof(), and remquol() functions shall compute the same remainder as the
       remainder(), remainderf(), and remainderl() functions, respectively. In the object pointed
       to  by  quo, they store a value whose sign is the sign of x/ y and whose magnitude is con-
       gruent modulo 2**n to the magnitude of the integral quotient of x/ y, where n is an imple-
       mentation-defined integer greater than or equal to 3.

       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 x REM y.

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

       If x is +-Inf or y is zero and the other argument is non-NaN, a domain error shall  occur,
       and either a NaN (if supported), or an implementation-defined value shall be returned.

ERRORS
       These functions shall fail if:

       Domain Error
	      The  x  argument	is +-Inf, or the y argument is +-0 and the other argument is non-
	      NaN.

       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.

       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
       These  functions are intended for implementing argument reductions which can exploit a few
       low-order bits of the quotient. Note that x may be so large in  magnitude  relative  to	y
       that an exact representation of the quotient is not practical.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
