ceil, ceilf, ceill - ceiling function: smallest integral value not less
   than argument


   #include <math.h>

   double ceil(double x);
   float ceilf(float x);
   long double ceill(long double x);

   Link with -lm.

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

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


   These functions return the smallest integral value  that  is  not  less
   than x.

   For example, ceil(0.5) is 1.0, and ceil(-0.5) is 0.0.


   These functions return the ceiling of x.

   If x is integral, +0, -0, NaN, or infinite, x itself is returned.


   No  errors  occur.  POSIX.1-2001 documents a range error for overflows,
   but see NOTES.

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

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


   SUSv2  and  POSIX.1-2001  contain  text about overflow (which might set
   errno to ERANGE, or raise an FE_OVERFLOW exception).  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).)

   The integral value returned by these functions  may  be  too  large  to
   store  in  an  integer  type  (int, long, etc.).  To avoid an overflow,
   which will produce undefined results, an application should  perform  a
   range  check  on  the  returned value before assigning it to an integer
