CONTENTS

LIBRARY

Math Library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>

double
fdim(double x, double y);

float
fdimf(float x, float y);

long double
fdiml(long double x, long double y);

DESCRIPTION

The fdim(), fdimf(), and fdiml() functions return the positive difference between x and y. That is, if x-, Ns, Fa, y is positive, then x-, Ns, Fa, y is returned. If either x or y is an NaN, then an NaN is returned. Otherwise, the result is +0.0.

Overflow or underflow may occur if the exact result is not representable in the return type. No other exceptions are raised.

SEE ALSO

fabs(3), fmax(3), fmin(3), math(3)

STANDARDS

The fdim(), fdimf(), and fdiml() functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 ("ISO C99").

HISTORY

These routines first appeared in FreeBSD 5.3 .

Today, the Unix equivalent of a power drill would have 20 dials and switches, come with a nonstandard plug, require the user to hand-wind the motor coil, and not accept 3/8" or 7/8" drill bits (though this would be documented in the BUGS section of its instruction manual).
