SYNOPSIS


#include <math.h> 

double fma(double x, double y, double z);
float fmaf(float x, float y, float z);
long double fmal(long double x, long double y, long double z);

Link with -lm.

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

fma(), fmaf(), fmal():

_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION

The fma() function computes x * y + z. The result is rounded as one ternary operation according to the current rounding mode (see fenv(3)).

RETURN VALUE

These functions return the value of x * y + z, rounded as one ternary operation.

If x or y is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

If x times y is an exact infinity, and z is an infinity with the opposite sign, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.

If one of x or y is an infinity, the other is 0, and z is not a NaN, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.

If one of x or y is an infinity, and the other is 0, and z is a NaN, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.

If x times y is not an infinity times zero (or vice versa), and z is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and an infinity with the correct sign is returned.

If the result underflows, a range error occurs, and a signed 0 is returned.

ERRORS

See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.

The following errors can occur:
Domain error: x * y + z,
  or x * y is invalid and z is not a NaN An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
Range error: result overflow
  An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.
Range error: result underflow
  An underflow floating-point exception (FE_UNDERFLOW) is raised.
These functions do not set errno.

VERSIONS

These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

CONFORMING TO
