SYNOPSIS


.In math.h double fmax "double x" "double y" float fmaxf "float x" "float y" "long double" fmaxl "long double x" "long double y" double fmin "double x" "double y" float fminf "float x" "float y" "long double" fminl "long double x" "long double y"

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 floating-point exceptions.
