REMAINDER(3) BSD Library Functions Manual REMAINDER(3)NAME
remainder -- floating-point remainder function
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>
double
remainder(double x, double y);
float
remainderf(float x, float y);
DESCRIPTION
The remainder() and remainderf() functions compute the value r such that r = x - n*y, where n is the integer nearest the exact value of x/y.
If there are two integers closest to x/y, n shall be the even one. If r is zero, it is given the same sign as x.
SPECIAL VALUES
remainder(x, y) returns a NaN and raises the "invalid" floating-point exception if x is infinite or y is 0.
SEE ALSO math(3)STANDARDS
The remainder() and remainderf() functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999(E).

REMAINDER(3) BSD Library Functions Manual REMAINDER(3)NAME
remainder -- floating-point remainder function
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>
double
remainder(double x, double y);
long double
remainderl(long double x, long double y);
float
remainderf(float x, float y);
DESCRIPTION
The remainder() functions compute the value r such that r = x - n*y, where n is the integer nearest the exact value of x/y.
If there are two integers closest to x/y, n shall be the even one. If r is zero, it is given the same sign as x.
SPECIAL VALUES
remainder(x, y) returns a NaN and raises the "invalid" floating-point exception if x is infinite or y is 0.
NOTE
The drem() function is deprecated. Please use the C99 function remainder() instead.
VECTOR OPERATIONS
If you need to apply the remainder() functions to SIMD vectors or arrays, using the following functions provided by the Accelerate.framework
may give significantly better performance:
#include <Accelerate/Accelerate.h>
vFloat vremainderf(vFloat x, vFloat y);
void vvremainderf(float *z, const float *y, const float *x, const int *n);
void vvremainder(double *z, const double *y, const double *x, const int *n);
SEE ALSO math(3)STANDARDS
The remainder() functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:2011.

What is the point of this? Whenever I close my shell it appends to the history file without adding this. I have never seen it overwrite my history file.
# When the shell exits, append to the history file instead of overwriting it

Greetings,
I'm trying to delete a file with a weird name from within Terminal on a Mac.
It's a very old file (1992) with null characters in the name: ââWord FinderÂŽ Plusâ˘.
Here are some examples of what I've tried:
12FX009:5 dpontius$ ls
ââWord FinderÂŽ Plusâ˘
12FX009:5 dpontius$ rm... (29 Replies)
