FMA(3P) POSIX Programmer's Manual FMA(3P)[top]PROLOGThis manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.NAMEfma, fmaf, fmal — floating-point multiply-addSYNOPSIS#include <math.h> double fma(double x, double y, double z); float fmaf(float x, float y, float z); long double fmal(long double x, long double y, long double z);DESCRIPTIONThe functionality described on this reference page is aligned with the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the requirements described here and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This volume of POSIX.1‐2008 defers to the ISO C standard. These functions shall compute (x * y) + z, rounded as one ternary oper‐ ation: they shall compute the value (as if) to infinite precision and round once to the result format, according to the rounding mode charac‐ terized by the value of FLT_ROUNDS. An application wishing to check for error situations should set errno to zero and call feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling these functions. On return, if errno is non-zero or fetestexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_DIVBYZERO | FE_OVERFLOW | FE_UNDERFLOW) is non-zero, an error has occurred.RETURN VALUEUpon successful completion, these functions shall return (x * y) + z, rounded as one ternary operation. If the result overflows or underflows, a range error may occur. On systems that support the IEC 60559 Floating-Point option, if the result overflows a range error shall occur. If x or y are NaN, a NaN shall be returned. If x multiplied by y is an exact infinity and z is also an infinity but with the opposite sign, a domain error shall occur, and either a NaN (if supported), or an implementation-defined value shall be returned. If one of x and y is infinite, the other is zero, and z is not a NaN, a domain error shall occur, and either a NaN (if supported), or an imple‐ mentation-defined value shall be returned. If one of x and y is infinite, the other is zero, and z is a NaN, a NaN shall be returned and a domain error may occur. If x*y is not 0*Inf nor Inf*0 and z is a NaN, a NaN shall be returned.ERRORSThese functions shall fail if: Domain Error The value of x*y+z is invalid, or the value x*y is invalid and z is not a NaN. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is non-zero, then errno shall be set to [EDOM]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, then the invalid floating-point exception shall be raised. Range Error The result overflows. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is non-zero, then errno shall be set to [ERANGE]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, then the overflow floating-point exception shall be raised. These functions may fail if: Domain Error The value x*y is invalid and z is a NaN. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is non-zero, then errno shall be set to [EDOM]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, then the invalid floating-point exception shall be raised. Range Error The result underflows. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is non-zero, then errno shall be set to [ERANGE]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, then the underflow floating-point exception shall be raised. Range Error The result overflows. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is non-zero, then errno shall be set to [ERANGE]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, then the overflow floating-point exception shall be raised. The following sections are informative.EXAMPLESNone.APPLICATION USAGEOn error, the expressions (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) and (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) are independent of each other, but at least one of them must be non-zero.RATIONALEIn many cases, clever use of floating (fused) multiply-add leads to much improved code; but its unexpected use by the compiler can under‐ mine carefully written code. The FP_CONTRACT macro can be used to dis‐ allow use of floating multiply-add; and the fma() function guarantees its use where desired. Many current machines provide hardware floating multiply-add instructions; software implementation can be used for oth‐ ers.FUTURE DIRECTIONSNone.SEE ALSOfeclearexcept(), fetestexcept() The Base Definitions volume of POSIX.1‐2008, Section 4.19, Treatment of Error Conditions for Mathematical Functions, <math.h>COPYRIGHTPortions of this text are reprinted and reproduced in electronic form from IEEE Std 1003.1, 2013 Edition, Standard for Information TechnologyPortable Operating System Interface (POSIX), The Open Group Base Specifications Issue 7, Copyright (C) 2013 by the Institute of Electri‐ cal and Electronics Engineers, Inc and The Open Group.
