Determine maximum of two floating-point numbers
double fmax(double x, double y);
float fmaxf(float x, float y);
long double fmaxl(long double x, long double y);
Link with -lm.
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
fmax(), fmaxf(), fmaxl():
_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99
These functions return the larger value of x and y.
These functions return the maximum of x and y.
If one argument is a NaN, the other argument is returned.
If both arguments are NaN, a NaN is returned.
No errors occur.
These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
The fmax(), fmaxf(), and fmaxl() functions are thread-safe.
