fmaxl Function

Returns the long double-precision value of the larger argument.

Include

<math.h>

Prototype

long double fmaxl(long double x, long double y);

Arguments

x
any long double precision floating-point number
y
any long double precision floating-point number

Return Value

Returns the long double-precision value of the larger argument.

Example

See the notes at the beginning of this chapter or section for information on using printf() or scanf() (and other functions reading and writing the stdin or stdout streams) in the example code.

#include <math.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
  long double x, y, z;

  x = -5.7;
  y = 2.0;
  z = fmaxl(x, y);
  printf("The larger of %Lf and %Lf is %Lf\n", x, y, z);
}

Example Output

The larger of -5.700000 and 2.000000 is 2.000000
