NAME

     nearbyint,  nearbyintf, nearbyintl, rint, rintf, rintl - round to near-
     est integer

SYNOPSIS

     #include <math.h>
     double nearbyint(double x);
     float nearbyintf(float x);
     long double nearbyintl(long double x);
     double rint(double x);
     float rintf(float x);
     long double rintl(long double x);
     Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION

     The nearbyint(), nearbyintf(), and nearbyintl() functions  round  their
     argument  to  an integer value in floating-point format, using the cur-
     rent rounding direction (see fesetround(3))  and  without  raising  the
     inexact  exception.  When the current rounding direction is to nearest,
     these functions round halfway cases to the even integer  in  accordance
     with IEEE-754.
     The  rint(), rintf(), and rintl() functions do the same, but will raise
     the inexact exception (FE_INEXACT, checkable via fetestexcept(3))  when
     the result differs in value from the argument.

RETURN VALUE

     These functions return the rounded integer value.
     If x is integral, +0, -0, NaN, or infinite, 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, POSIX.1-2008.

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).)
     If you want to store the rounded value in an integer type, you probably
     want to use one of the functions described in lrint(3) instead.
