NEXTAFTER(3) Linux Programmer's Manual NEXTAFTER(3)[top]NAMEnextafter, nextafterf, nextafterl, nexttoward, nexttowardf, nexttowardl - floating-point number manipulationSYNOPSIS#include <math.h> double nextafter(double x, double y); float nextafterf(float x, float y); long double nextafterl(long double x, long double y); double nexttoward(double x, long double y); float nexttowardf(float x, long double y); long double nexttowardl(long double x, long double y); Link withFeature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): nextafter(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 || _XOPEN_SOURCE && _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L; or cc -std=c99 nextafterf(), nextafterl(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L; or cc -std=c99 nexttoward(), nexttowardf(), nexttowardl(): _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L; or cc -std=c99-lm.DESCRIPTIONThe nextafter(), nextafterf(), and nextafterl() functions return the next representable floating-point value following x in the direction of y. If y is less than x, these functions will return the largest repre‐ sentable number less than x. If x equals y, the functions return y. The nexttoward(), nexttowardf(), and nexttowardl() functions do the same as the corresponding nextafter() functions, except that they have a long double second argument.RETURN VALUEOn success, these functions return the next representable floating- point value after x in the direction of y. If x equals y, then y (cast to the same type as x) is returned. If x or y is a NaN, a NaN is returned. If x is finite, and the result would overflow, a range error occurs, and the functions return HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or HUGE_VALL, respec‐ tively, with the correct mathematical sign. If x is not equal to y, and the correct function result would be sub‐ normal, zero, or underflow, a range error occurs, and either the cor‐ rect value (if it can be represented), or 0.0, is returned.ERRORSSee math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions. The following errors can occur: Range error: result overflow An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised. Range error: result is subnormal or underflows An underflow floating-point exception (FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised. These functions do not set errno.ATTRIBUTESMultithreading (see pthreads(7)) The nextafter(), nextafterf(), nextafterl(), nexttoward(), nextto‐ wardf(), and nexttowardl() functions are thread-safe.CONFORMING TOC99, POSIX.1-2001. This function is defined in IEC 559 (and the appen‐ dix with recommended functions in IEEE 754/IEEE 854).BUGSIn glibc version 2.5 and earlier, these functions do not raise an underflow floating-point (FE_UNDERFLOW) exception when an underflow occurs.SEE ALSOnearbyint(3)COLOPHONThis page is part of release 3.55 of the Linux man-pages project.
