```fmin(3M)						  Mathematical Library Functions						  fmin(3M)

NAME
fmin, fminf, fminl - determine minimum numeric value of two floating-point numbers

SYNOPSIS
c99 [ flag... ] file... -lm [ library... ]
#include <math.h>

double fmin(double x, double y);

float fminf(float float x, float y);

long double fminl(long double x, long double y);

DESCRIPTION
These functions determine the minimum numeric value of their arguments. NaN arguments are treated as missing data: if one argument is a NaN
and the other numeric, these functions choose the numeric value.

RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, these functions return the minimum numeric value of their arguments.

If just one argument is a NaN, the other argument is returned.

If x and y are NaN, a NaN is returned.

ERRORS
No errors are defined.
