FLOAT(3) BSD Library Functions Manual FLOAT(3)
float -- functions with single-precision floating-point arguments
The following functions are available in single precision. The functions conform to the
ISO/IEC 9899:1999(E) standard. They are similar to the corresponding double-precision func-
tions (which have the same name, without the "f" at the end). The double-precision functions
have their own pages. Wherever the double-precision functions use a double-precision float-
ing-point value (as an argument or return value), these functions use a single-precision
To use these functions you must add an additional flag to the link step that produces the
executable binary. Specify "-lmx".
The following functions are also available in single precision. The functions conform to the
ISO/IEC 9899:1999(E) standard. Each one has its own page, which it shares with its corre-
sponding double-precision function (which has the same name, without the "f" on the end).
The page can be found under both names.
You do not need to specify the "-lmx" flag to use these functions.
