floor

       ment

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double floor(double x);
       float floorf(float x);
       long double floorl(long double x);

       Link with -lm.

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       floorf(), floorl():
           _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 ||
           _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
           or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION
       These  functions  return the largest integral value that is not greater
       than x.

       For example, floor(0.5) is 0.0, and floor(-0.5) is -1.0.

RETURN VALUE
       These functions return the floor of x.

       If x is integral, +0, -0, NaN, or an infinity, x itself is returned.

ERRORS
       No errors occur.  POSIX.1-2001 documents a range error  for  overflows,
       but see NOTES.

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001.  The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4,
       4.3BSD, C89.

NOTES
       SUSv2 and POSIX.1-2001 contain text about  overflow  (which  might  set
       errno  to ERANGE, or raise an FE_OVERFLOW 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  man-
       tissa bits.  For the IEEE-754 standard 32-bit and 64-bit floating-point
       numbers the maximum value of the exponent is 128 (respectively,  1024),
       and the number of mantissa bits is 24 (respectively, 53).)
