Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600
|| _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99
These functions return the positive difference, max(x-y,0), between their arguments.
On success, these functions return the positive difference.
If x or y is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If the result overflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or HUGE_VALL, respectively.
See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.
errors can occur:
Range error: result overflow
An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW) is raised.
These functions do not set errno.
These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
