lround, lroundf, lroundl — round to nearest integer value
Synopsis
#include <math.h> long lround(double x); long lroundf(float x); long lroundl(long double x);
Description
The functionality described on this reference page is aligned with the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the requirements described here and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This volume of POSIX.12008 defers to the ISO C standard.
These functions shall round their argument to the nearest integer value, rounding halfway cases away from zero, regardless of the current rounding direction.
An application wishing to check for error situations should set errno to zero and call feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling these functions. On return, if errno is nonzero or fetestexcept(FE_INVALID  FE_DIVBYZERO  FE_OVERFLOW  FE_UNDERFLOW) is nonzero, an error has occurred.
Return Value
Upon successful completion, these functions shall return the rounded integer value.
If x is NaN, a domain error shall occur and an unspecified value is returned.
If x is +Inf, a domain error shall occur and an unspecified value is returned.
If x is Inf, a domain error shall occur and an unspecified value is returned.
If the correct value is positive and too large to represent as a long, an unspecified value shall be returned. On systems that support the IEC 60559 FloatingPoint option, a domain shall occur; otherwise, a domain error may occur.
If the correct value is negative and too large to represent as a long, an unspecified value shall be returned. On systems that support the IEC 60559 FloatingPoint option, a domain shall occur; otherwise, a domain error may occur.
Errors
These functions shall fail if:
 Domain Error

The x argument is NaN or ±Inf, or the correct value is not representable as an integer.
If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is nonzero, then errno shall be set to [EDOM]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is nonzero, then the invalid floatingpoint exception shall be raised.
These functions may fail if:
 Domain Error

The correct value is not representable as an integer.
If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is nonzero, then errno shall be set to [EDOM]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is nonzero, then the invalid floatingpoint exception shall be raised.
The following sections are informative.
Examples
None.
Application Usage
On error, the expressions (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) and (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) are independent of each other, but at least one of them must be nonzero.
Rationale
These functions differ from the lrint() functions in the default rounding direction, with the lround() functions rounding halfway cases away from zero and needing not to raise the inexact floatingpoint exception for noninteger arguments that round to within the range of the return type.
Future Directions
None.
