   The nearbyint(), nearbyintf(), and nearbyintl() functions  round  their
   argument  to  an  integer  value  in  floating-point  format, using the
   current rounding direction (see fesetround(3)) and without raising  the
   inexact  exception.  When the current rounding direction is to nearest,
   these functions round halfway cases to the even integer  in  accordance
   with IEEE-754.

   The  rint(), rintf(), and rintl() functions do the same, but will raise
   the inexact exception (FE_INEXACT, checkable via fetestexcept(3))  when
   the result differs in value from the argument.


   These functions return the rounded integer value.

   If x is integral, +0, -0, NaN, or infinite, x itself is returned.


   No  errors  occur.  POSIX.1-2001 documents a range error for overflows,
   but see NOTES.

   SUSv2  and  POSIX.1-2001  contain  text about overflow (which might set
   errno to ERANGE, or raise an FE_OVERFLOW exception).  In practice,  the
   result  cannot  overflow on any current machine, so this error-handling
   stuff is just nonsense.  (More precisely, overflow can happen only when
   the  maximum  value  of  the  exponent  is  smaller  than the number of
   mantissa bits.  For the IEEE-754 standard 32-bit and  64-bit  floating-
   point  numbers  the maximum value of the exponent is 128 (respectively,
   1024), and the number of mantissa bits is 24 (respectively, 53).)

   If you want to store the rounded value in an integer type, you probably
   want to use one of the functions described in lrint(3) instead.

Free Software

Free Software provides computer programs and capabilities at no cost but more importantly, it provides the freedom to run, edit, contribute to, and share the software. The importance of free software is a matter of access, not price. Software at no cost is a benefit but ownership rights to the software and source code is far more significant.

Free Office Software - The Libre Office suite provides top desktop productivity tools for free. This includes, a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation engine, drawing and flowcharting, database and math applications. Libre Office is available for Linux or Windows.

Free Books

The Free Books Library is a collection of thousands of the most popular public domain books in an online readable format. The collection includes great classical literature and more recent works where the U.S. copyright has expired. These books are yours to read and use without restrictions.

Source Code - Want to change a program or know how it works? Open Source provides the source code for its programs so that anyone can use, modify or learn how to write those programs themselves. Visit the GNU source code repositories to download the source.
