ceil, ceilf, floor, floorfceiling and floor--LIBRARY

Math Library (libm, -lm)SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h> double ceil(double x); float ceilf(float x); double floor(double x); float floorf(float x);DESCRIPTION

The ceil() and ceilf() functions return the smallest integral value greater than or equal to x. Conversely, the floor() and floorf() func- tions return the largest integral value less than or equal to x.SEE ALSO

The floor(), floorf(), and floorl() functions return the largest floating-point integer value less than or equal to x. The ceil(), ceilf(), and ceill() functions return the smallest floating-point integer value greater than or equal to x. The modf(), modff(), and modfl() functions split a floating-point number x into a fractional part f and an integer part i such that |f| < 1.0 and (f + i) = x. Both f and i have the same sign as x. The modf(), modff(), and modfl() functions return f and store i into the loca- tion pointed to by n. The nint(), nintf(), and nintl() functions return the nearest integral value to x, except halfway cases are rounded to the integral value larger in magnitude. This corresponds to the FORTRAN generic intrinsic function nint(). The rint(), rintf(), and rintl() functions round x to an integral value according to the current IEEE rounding direction specified by the user. The trunc(), truncf(), and truncl() functions truncate x to an integral value. delim off floor(3)
