DESCRIPTIONThe nextafter() functions return the next representable floating-point value following x in the direction of y. If y is less than x, these functions will return the largest representable number less than x.
RETURN VALUEOn success, these functions return the next representable floating-point value after x in the direction of y.
ERRORSSee math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.
The following errors can occur:
- Range error: result overflow
- An overflow floating-point exception ( FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.
- Range error: result is subnormal or underflows
- An underflow floating-point exception ( FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised.
These functions do not set errno.
CONFORMING TOC99, POSIX.1-2001. This function is defined in IEC 559 (and the appendix with recommended functions in IEEE 754/IEEE 854).
BUGSIn glibc version 2.5 and earlier, these functions do not raise an underflow floating-point ( FE_UNDERFLOW) exception when an underflow occurs.
