modf: decompose a floating-point number
PROLOGThis manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.
modf, modff, modfl - decompose a floating-point number
These functions shall break the argument x into integral and fractional parts, each of which has the same sign as the argument. It stores the integral part as a double (for the modf() function), a float (for the modff() function), or a long double (for the modfl() function), in the object pointed to by iptr.
Upon successful completion, these functions shall return the signed fractional part of x.
If x is NaN, a NaN shall be returned, and *iptr shall be set to a NaN.
No errors are defined.
The modf() function computes the function result and *iptr such that:
a = modf(x, iptr) ; x == a+*iptr ;
