DESCRIPTION

The nearbyint(), nearbyintf(), and nearbyintl() functions round their argument to an integer value in floating-point format, using the current rounding direction (see fesetround(3)) and without raising the inexactexception. 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 inexactexception (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 xis integral, +0, -0, NaN, or infinite, xitself 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 errnoto ERANGE, or raise an FE_OVERFLOWexception). 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 mantissa 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.
