**fmod**

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);
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 || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99
DESCRIPTION
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 toward zero to an integer.
RETURN VALUE
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.
ERRORS
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
errno is set to EDOM (but see BUGS). An invalid floating-point
exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
Domain error: y is zero
errno is set to EDOM. An invalid floating-point exception
(FE_INVALID) is raised.
BUGS
Before version 2.10, the glibc implementation did not set errno to EDOM
when a domain error occurred for an infinite x.
