round, roundf, roundl - round to nearest integer, away from zero


   #include <math.h>

   double round(double x);
   float roundf(float x);
   long double roundl(long double x);

   Link with -lm.

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

   round(), roundf(), roundl():
       _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L


   These functions round x to the nearest integer, but round halfway cases
   away from zero (regardless  of  the  current  rounding  direction,  see
   fenv(3)), instead of to the nearest even integer like rint(3).

   For example, round(0.5) is 1.0, and round(-0.5) is -1.0.


   These functions return the rounded integer value.

   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.


   These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

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


   POSIX.1-2001  contains  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).)

   If you want to store the rounded value in an integer type, you probably
   want to use one of the functions described in lround(3) instead.

Free Software

Free Software provides computer programs and capabilities at no cost but more importantly, it provides the freedom to run, edit, contribute to, and share the software. The importance of free software is a matter of access, not price. Software at no cost is a benefit but ownership rights to the software and source code is far more significant.

Free Office Software - The Libre Office suite provides top desktop productivity tools for free. This includes, a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation engine, drawing and flowcharting, database and math applications. Libre Office is available for Linux or Windows.

Free Books

The Free Books Library is a collection of thousands of the most popular public domain books in an online readable format. The collection includes great classical literature and more recent works where the U.S. copyright has expired. These books are yours to read and use without restrictions.

Source Code - Want to change a program or know how it works? Open Source provides the source code for its programs so that anyone can use, modify or learn how to write those programs themselves. Visit the GNU source code repositories to download the source.
