DESCRIPTIONThese functions compute x * y + z. The result is rounded as one ternary operation according to the current rounding mode (see fenv(3)).
RETURN VALUEThese functions return the value of x * y + z, rounded as one ternary operation.
If xor yis a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If xtimes yis an exact infinity, and zis an infinity with the opposite sign, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.
If one of xor yis an infinity, the other is 0, and zis not a NaN, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.
If one of xor yis an infinity, and the other is 0, and zis a NaN, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.
If xtimes yis not an infinity times zero (or vice versa), and zis a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and an infinity with the correct sign 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:
- Domain error: x * y + z, or x * y is invalid and z is not a NaN
- An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
- Range error: result overflow
- An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.
- Range error: result underflow
- An underflow floating-point exception (FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised.
VERSIONSThese functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
