Description Peter Hite 2002-06-21 00:08:41 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; Charter B1)

Description of problem:
The round() function (and other similar rounding functions) do not work. (I 
included math.h)

The following gives me a zero result:

double dnum=10.00;
dnum=round(dnum);
/* dnum would be 0*/


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Program above with or without optimization
2.
3.
	

Actual Results:  When using round I get 0, huge numbers or NAN

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2002-06-21 05:17:01 EDT
round(3) is only part of ISO C99, so you need to select that feature
set or language standard when compiling, like:
gcc -std=c99 round.c -lm
gcc -D_ISOC99_SOURCE round.c -lm
gcc -D_GNU_SOURCE round.c -lm

If you compiled the program with -Wall (and without one of the above options),
you'd see what's going on clearly:
warning: implicit declaration of function `round'

See info libc, "Feature Test Macros" chapter.

Thanks, that worked.  Without it, it was stomping all over memory.  Will use 
the -Wall feature from now on.
