#### NAME

nextup, nextupf, nextupl, nextdown, nextdownf, nextdownl - return next floating-point number toward positive/negative infinity#### SYNOPSIS

#define _GNU_SOURCE/* See feature_test_macros(7) */#include <math.h>double nextup(doublex);float nextupf(floatx);long double nextupl(long doublex);double nextdown(doublex);float nextdownf(floatx);long double nextdownl(long doublex);Link with-lm.

#### DESCRIPTION

The**nextup**(),

**nextupf**(), and

**nextupl**() functions return the next representable floating-point number greater than

*x*.

If

*x*is the smallest representable negative number in the corresponding type, these functions return -0. If

*x*is 0, the returned value is the smallest representable positive number of the corresponding type.

If

*x*is positive infinity, the returned value is positive infinity. If

*x*is negative infinity, the returned value is the largest representable finite negative number of the corresponding type.

If

*x*is Nan, the returned value is NaN.

The value returned by

*nextdown(x)*is

*-nextup(-x)*, and similarly for the other types.

#### RETURN VALUE

See DESCRIPTION.#### VERSIONS

These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.24.#### ATTRIBUTES
