fminl Function

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

Include

<math.h>

Prototype

long double fminl(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 smaller 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 = fminl(x, y);
  printf("The smaller of %Lf and %Lf is %Lf\n", x, y, z);
}

Example Output

The smaller of -5.700000 and 2.000000 is -5.700000
