NEXTAFTER(3)				     BSD Library Functions Manual				 NEXTAFTER(3)

NAME
nextafter, nextafterf, nextafterl, nexttoward -- next representable floating-point number
LIBRARY
Math Library (libm, -lm)
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> double nextafter(double x, double y); float nextafterf(float x, float y); long double nextafterl(long double x, long double y); double nexttoward(double x, long double y);
DESCRIPTION
The nextafter(), nextafterf(), and nextafterl() functions return the next machine representable number from x in direction of y. In other words, if y is less than x, the functions return the largest representable floating- point number less than x. When x equals y, the value of y is returned. The three functions differ only in the type of the return value and x. The nexttoward() function is equivalent to the nextafter() family of functions with two exceptions: 1. The second parameter has a type long double. 2. The return value is y converted to the type of the function, provided that x equals y.
RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, the described functions return the next representable floating-point value as described above. If x is finite but an overflow would occur, a range error follows and the functions return +-HUGE_VAL, +-HUGE_VALF, or +-HUGE_VALL with the same sign as x. When either x or y is NaN, a NaN is returned. When x is not y but the function value is subnormal, zero, or underflows, a range error occurs, and either 0.0 or the correct function value (if representable) is returned.

STANDARDS
The described functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99'').
