# C floor() function

## C floor() function - Find Integer

Syntax:

`double floor(double x)`

The floor() function is used to calculate the largest integer that is less than or equal to x.

Parameters:

Name Description Required /Optional
x Floating-point value. Required

Return value from floor() function

• Returns the floating-point result as a double value.

Example: floor() function

The following example shows the usage of floor() function.

``````
#include <math.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
double x, y;
x = 4.6;
y = -4.6;
printf("Before applying floor()");
printf("\nx = %lf", x);
printf("\ny = %lf", y);
x = floor(x);
y = floor(y);
printf("\n\nAfter applying floor()");
printf("\nx = %lf", x);
printf("\ny = %lf", y);
}
``````

Output:

```Before applying floor()
x = 4.600000
y = -4.600000

After applying floor()
x = 4.000000
y = -5.000000
```

## C Programming: Tips of the Day

What's the point of const pointers?

const is a tool which you should use in pursuit of a very important C++ concept:

Find bugs at compile-time, rather than run-time, by getting the compiler to enforce what you mean.

Even though it does not change the functionality, adding const generates a compiler error when you're doing things you didn't mean to do. Imagine the following typo:

```void foo(int* ptr)
{
ptr = 0;// oops, I meant *ptr = 0
}
```

If you use int* const, this would generate a compiler error because you're changing the value to ptr. Adding restrictions via syntax is a good thing in general. Just don't take it too far -- the example you gave is a case where most people don't bother using const.
