TRUNC(3)                   Linux Programmer's Manual                  TRUNC(3)

NAME
       trunc, truncf, truncl - round to integer, toward zero

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double trunc(double x);
       float truncf(float x);
       long double truncl(long double x);

       Link with -lm.

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

       trunc(), truncf(), truncl():
           _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
           _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
           or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION
       These functions round x to the nearest integer not larger  in  absolute
       value.

RETURN VALUE
       These functions return the rounded integer value.

       If x is integral, infinite, or NaN, x itself is returned.

ERRORS
       No errors occur.

VERSIONS
       These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

ATTRIBUTES
       For   an   explanation   of   the  terms  used  in  this  section,  see
       attributes(7).

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

NOTES
       The integral value returned by these functions  may  be  too  large  to
       store  in  an  integer  type  (int, long, etc.).  To avoid an overflow,
       which will produce undefined results, an application should  perform  a
       range  check  on  the  returned value before assigning it to an integer
       type.
