RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for round (redhat section 3)

ROUND(3)				      Linux Programmer's Manual 				     ROUND(3)

NAME
round, roundf, roundl - round to nearest integer, away from zero
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> double round(double x); float roundf(float x); long double roundl(long double x);
DESCRIPTION
These functions round x to the nearest integer, but round halfway cases away from zero (regardless of the cur- rent rounding direction), instead of to the nearest even integer like rint().
RETURN VALUE
The rounded integer value. If x is integral or infinite, x itself is returned.
ERRORS
No errors other than EDOM and ERANGE can occur. If x is NaN, then NaN is returned and errno may be set to EDOM.
NOTES
POSIX 1003.1-2001 contains text about overflow (which might set errno to ERANGE, or raise an exception). In practice, the result cannot overflow on any current machine, so this error-handling stuff is just nonsense. (More precisely, overflow can happen only when the maximum value of the exponent is smaller than the number of mantissa bits. For the IEEE-754 standard 32-bit and 64-bit floating point numbers the maximum value of the exponent is 128 (resp. 1024), and the number of mantissa bits is 24 (resp. 53).)
CONFORMING TO
C99.
