NAME

       modf,  modff,  modfl  -  extract signed integral and fractional values from floating-point
       number

SYNOPSIS

       #include <math.h>

       double modf(double x, double *iptr);
       float modff(float x, float *iptr);
       long double modfl(long double x, long double *iptr);

       Link with -lm.

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

       modf(), modfl():
           _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
               || /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
               || /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION

       These functions break the argument x into an integral part and a fractional part, each  of
       which  has  the same sign as x.  The integral part is stored in the location pointed to by
       iptr.

RETURN VALUE

       These functions return the fractional part of x.

       If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned, and *iptr is set to a NaN.

       If x is positive infinity (negative infinity), +0 (-0) is returned, and *iptr  is  set  to
       positive infinity (negative infinity).

ERRORS

       No errors occur.

CONFORMING TO

       C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

       The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
