Name

nextup, nextupf, nextupl, nextdown, nextdownf, nextdownl — return next floating-point number toward positive/negative infinity

Synopsis

#define _GNU_SOURCE      /* See feature_test_macros(7) */
#include <math.h>
double nextup( double x);
 
float nextupf( float x);
 
long double nextupl( long double x);
 
double nextdown( double x);
 
float nextdownf( float x);
 
long double nextdownl( long double x);

DESCRIPTION

The nextup(), nextupf(), and nextupl() functions return the next representable floating-point number greater than x.

If x is the smallest representable negative number in the corresponding type, these functions return −0. If x is 0, the returned value is the smallest representable positive number of the corresponding type.

If x is positive infinity, the returned value is positive infinity. If x is negative infinity, the returned value is the largest representable finite negative number of the corresponding type.

If x is Nan, the returned value is NaN.

The value returned by nextdown(x) is −nextup(−x), and similarly for the other types.

RETURN VALUE

See DESCRIPTION.

VERSIONS

These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.24.
