REMQUO(3)                 Linux Programmer's Manual                REMQUO(3)

NAME         top

       remquo, remquof, remquol - remainder and part of quotient

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <math.h>

       double remquo(double x, double y, int *quo);
       float remquof(float x, float y, int *quo);
       long double remquol(long double x, long double y, int *quo);

       Link with -lm.

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

       remquo(), remquof(), remquol():
           _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
           _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
           or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION         top

       These functions compute the remainder and part of the quotient upon
       division of x by y.  A few bits of the quotient are stored via the
       quo pointer.  The remainder is returned as the function result.

       The value of the remainder is the same as that computed by the
       remainder(3) function.

       The value stored via the quo pointer has the sign of x / y and agrees
       with the quotient in at least the low order 3 bits.

       For example, remquo(29.0, 3.0) returns -1.0 and might store 2.  Note
       that the actual quotient might not fit in an integer.

RETURN VALUE         top

       On success, these functions return the same value as the analogous
       functions described in remainder(3).

       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.

ERRORS         top

       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 or y is 0, and the other argument is
       not a NaN
              An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.

       These functions do not set errno.

VERSIONS         top

       These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

ATTRIBUTES         top

   Multithreading (see pthreads(7))
       The remquo(), remquof(), and remquol() functions are thread-safe.

CONFORMING TO         top

       C99, POSIX.1-2001.
