       The  remainder()  function  computes  the remainder of dividing x by y.
       The return value is x-n*y, where n is the value x / y, rounded  to  the
       nearest integer.  If the absolute value of x-n*y is 0.5, n is chosen to
       be even.

       These functions are  unaffected  by  the  current  rounding  mode  (see

       The drem() function does precisely the same thing.

       On success, these functions return the floating-point remainder, x-n*y.
       If the return value is 0, it has the sign of x.

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

       If x is an infinity, and y is not a NaN, a domain error occurs,  and  a
       NaN is returned.

       If  y  is zero, and x is not a NaN, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is

              errno  is  set  to  EDOM.   An  invalid floating-point exception
              (FE_INVALID) is raised.

       The functions remainder(), remainderf(), and remainderl() are specified
       in C99 and POSIX.1-2001.

       The function drem() is from 4.3BSD.  The float and long double variants
       dremf() and dreml() exist on some systems, such as  Tru64  and  glibc2.
       Avoid the use of these functions in favor of remainder() etc.

       The call

           remainder(nan(""), 0);

       returns  a  NaN,  as  expected,  but  wrongly causes a domain error; it
       should yield a silent NaN.

       The call "remainder(29.0, 3.0)" returns -1.
