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);

Link with -lm.  

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.
