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

       round, roundf, roundl - round to nearest integer, away from zero

       #include <math.h>

       double round(double x);
       float roundf(float x);
       long double roundl(long double x);

       These  functions  round	x  to the nearest integer, but round halfway cases away from zero
       (regardless of the current rounding direction), instead of to  the  nearest  even  integer
       like rint().

       The rounded integer value. If x is integral or infinite, x itself is returned.

       No  errors  other  than	EDOM and ERANGE can occur.  If x is NaN, then NaN is returned and
       errno may be set to EDOM.

       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  expo-
       nent is 128 (resp. 1024), and the number of mantissa bits is 24 (resp. 53).)
