NAME
fma, fmaf, fmal  floatingpoint multiply and add
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>
double fma(double x, double y, double z);
float fmaf(float x, float y, float z);
long double fmal(long double x, long double y, long double z);
Link with lm.
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see
feature_test_macros(7)):
fma(),
fmaf(),
fmal():

_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600  _ISOC99_SOURCE 
_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or
cc std=c99
DESCRIPTION
The
fma()
function computes
x *
y +
z.
The result is rounded as one ternary operation according to the
current rounding mode (see
fenv(3)).
RETURN VALUE
These functions return the value of
x *
y +
z,
rounded as one ternary operation.
If
x
or
y
is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If
x
times
y
is an exact infinity, and
z
is an infinity with the opposite sign,
a domain error occurs,
and a NaN is returned.
If one of
x
or
y
is an infinity, the other is 0, and
z
is not a NaN,
a domain error occurs, and
a NaN is returned.
If one of
x
or
y
is an infinity, and the other is 0, and
z
is a NaN,
a domain error occurs, and
a NaN is returned.
If
x
times
y
is not an infinity times zero (or vice versa), and
z
is a NaN,
a NaN is returned.
If the result overflows,
a range error occurs, and
an infinity with the correct sign is returned.
If the result underflows,
a range error occurs, and
a signed 0 is returned.
ERRORS
See
math_error(7)
for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred
when calling these functions.
The following errors can occur:
 Domain error: x * y + z, or x * y is invalid and z is not a NaN

An invalid floatingpoint exception
(FE_INVALID)
is raised.
 Range error: result overflow

An overflow floatingpoint exception
(FE_OVERFLOW)
is raised.
 Range error: result underflow

An underflow floatingpoint exception
(FE_UNDERFLOW)
is raised.
These functions do not set
errno.
VERSIONS
These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
ATTRIBUTES
Multithreading (see pthreads(7))
The
fma(),
fmaf(),
and
fmal()
functions are threadsafe.
CONFORMING TO
C99, POSIX.12001.
