   These functions compute the remainder of dividing x by y.   The  return
   value  is  x-n*y,  where  n  is the value x / y, rounded to the nearest
   integer.  If the absolute value of x-n*y is 0.5,  n  is  chosen  to  be

   These  functions  are  unaffected  by  the  current  rounding mode (see

   The drem() function does precisely the same thing.


   On success, these functions return the floating-point remainder, x-n*y.
   If the return value is 0, it has the sign of x.

   If x or y is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

   If  x  is an infinity, and y is not a NaN, a domain error occurs, and a
   NaN is returned.

   If y is zero, and x is not a NaN, a domain error occurs, and a  NaN  is


   See  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 is an infinity and y is not a NaN
          errno is set to EDOM (but see BUGS).  An invalid  floating-point
          exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.

          These functions do not set errno for this case.

   Domain error: y is zero
          errno  is  set  to  EDOM.   An  invalid floating-point exception
          (FE_INVALID) is raised.

   The functions remainder(), remainderf(), and remainderl() are specified
   in C99, POSIX.1-2001, and POSIX.1-2008.

   The function drem() is from 4.3BSD.  The float and long double variants
   dremf()  and  dreml()  exist on some systems, such as Tru64 and glibc2.
   Avoid the use of these functions in favor of remainder() etc.


   Before glibc 2.15, the call

       remainder(nan(""), 0);

   returned a NaN, as expected, but wrongly caused a domain error.   Since
   glibc 2.15, a silent NaN (i.e., no domain error) is returned.

   Before  glibc 2.15, errno was not set to EDOM for the domain error that
   occurs when x is an infinity and y is not a NaN.  errno was not set


   The call "remainder(29.0, 3.0)" returns -1.
