NAME
remainder, remainderf, remainderl - remainder function SYNOPSIS
c99 [ flag... ] file... -lm [ library... ] #include <math.h> double remainder(double x, double y); float remainderf(float x, float y); long double remainderl(long double x, long double y); DESCRIPTION
These functions return the floating point remainder r = x - ny when y is non-zero. The value n is the integral value nearest the exact value x/y. When |n - x/y| = 1/2, the value n is chosen to be even. The behavior of remainder() is independent of the rounding mode. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, these functions return the floating point remainder r = x - ny when y is non-zero. If x or y is NaN, a NaN is returned. If x is infinite or y is 0 and the other is non-NaN, a domain error occurs and a NaN is returned. ERRORS
These functions will fail if: Domain Error The x argument is +-Inf, or the y argument is +-0 and the other argument is non-NaN. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, then the invalid floating-point exception is raised. The remainder() function sets errno to EDOM if y argument is 0 or the x argument is positive or negative infinity. USAGE
An application wanting to check for error situations can set errno to 0 before calling remainder(). On return, if errno is non-zero, an error has occurred. The remainderf() and remainderl() functions do not set errno. ATTRIBUTES
