fmod, fmodf, fmodl - floating-point remainder function
double fmod(double x, double y);
float fmodf(float x, float y);
long double fmodl(long double x, long double y);
Link with -lm.
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
fmodf(), fmodl(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600
|| _ISOC99_SOURCE; or cc -std=c99
The fmod() function computes the floating-point remainder of dividing x
by y. The return value is x - n * y, where n is the quotient of x / y,
rounded towards zero to an integer.
On success, these functions return the value x - n*y, for some integer
n, such that the returned value has the same sign as x and a magnitude
less than the magnitude of y.
If x or y is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If x is an infinity, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.
If y is zero, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.
If x is +0 (-0), and y is not zero, +0 (-0) is returned.
See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error
has occurred when calling these functions.
The following errors can occur:
Domain error: x is an infinity
An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
These functions do not set errno for this case.
Domain error: y is zero
errno is set to EDOM. An invalid floating-point exception
(FE_INVALID) is raised.
