#include <math.h> double fmod(double x, double y); float fmodf(float x, float y); long double fmodl(long double x, long double y);

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

_ISOC99_SOURCE  _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
 /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
 /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE  _SVID_SOURCE
DESCRIPTION
These functions compute the floatingpoint remainder of dividing x by y. The return value is x  n * y, where n is the quotient of x / y, rounded toward zero to an integer.RETURN VALUE
On success, these functions return the value x  n*y, for some integer n, such that the returned value has the same sign as x and a magnitude less than the magnitude of y.If x or y is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If x is an infinity, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.
If y is zero, a domain error occurs, and a NaN is returned.
If x is +0 (0), and y is not zero, +0 (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 is an infinity
 errno is set to EDOM (but see BUGS). An invalid floatingpoint exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.
 Domain error: y is zero
 errno is set to EDOM. An invalid floatingpoint exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.

CONFORMING TO
C99, POSIX.12001, POSIX.12008.The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
BUGS
Before version 2.10, the glibc implementation did not set errno to EDOM when a domain error occurred for an infinite x.SEE ALSO
