DESCRIPTION
The
fmax
,
fmaxf
, and
fmaxl
functions return the larger of
x
and
y
, and likewise, the
fmin
,
fminf
, and
fminl
functions return the smaller of
x
and
y
. They treat +0.0 as being larger than 0.0. If one argument is an NaN, then the other argument is returned. If both arguments are NaNs, then the result is an NaN. These routines do not raise any floatingpoint exceptions.
