**remainder**

remainder function
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>
/* The C99 versions */
double remainder(double x, double y);
float remainderf(float x, float y);
long double remainderl(long double x, long double y);
/* Obsolete synonyms */
double drem(double x, double y);
float dremf(float x, float y);
long double dreml(long double x, long double y);
Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION
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
**fenv(3)**).
The drem() function does precisely the same thing.
RETURN VALUE
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
returned.
errno is set to EDOM. An invalid floating-point exception
(FE_INVALID) is raised.
CONFORMING TO
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.
BUGS
The call
remainder(nan(""), 0);
returns a NaN, as expected, but wrongly causes a domain error; it
should yield a silent NaN.
EXAMPLE
The call "remainder(29.0, 3.0)" returns -1.
