FMOD(3P)		   POSIX Programmer's Manual		      FMOD(3P)

PROLOG
       This  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.

NAME
       fmod, fmodf, fmodl - floating-point remainder value function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double fmod(double x, double y);
       float fmodf(float x, float y);
       long double fmodl(long double x, long double y);

DESCRIPTION
       These functions shall return the floating-point remainder of the	 divi‐
       sion of x by y.

       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 VALUE
       These functions shall return the value x- i* y, for some integer i such
       that, if y is non-zero, the result has the same sign as x and magnitude
       less than the magnitude of y.

       If the correct value would cause underflow, and is not representable, a
       range error may occur, and  either 0.0 (if supported), or an  implemen‐
       tation-defined value shall be returned.

       If x or y is NaN, a NaN shall be returned.

       If  y  is  zero,	 a domain error shall occur, and either a NaN (if sup‐
       ported), or an implementation-defined value shall be returned.

       If x is infinite, a domain error shall occur, and either a NaN (if sup‐
       ported), or an implementation-defined value shall be returned.

       If x is ±0 and y is not zero, ±0 shall be returned.

       If x is not infinite and y is ±Inf, x shall be returned.

       If  the	correct	 value	would cause underflow, and is representable, a
       range error may occur and the correct value shall be returned.

ERRORS
       These functions shall fail if:

       Domain Error
	      The x argument is infinite or y is zero.

       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.

       These functions may fail if:

       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.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       On  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.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
