Link with -lm.

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

fabsf(), fabsl(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE; or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION The fabs() functions return the absolute value of the floating-point number x.

RETURN VALUE These functions return the absolute value of x.

If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

If x is -0, +0 is returned.

If x is negative infinity or positive infinity, positive infinity is returned.

ERRORS No errors occur.
