copysign, copysignf, copysignl - copy sign of a number
double copysign(double x, double y);
float copysignf(float x, float y);
long double copysignl(long double x, long double y);
Link with -lm.
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
copysign(), copysignf(), copysignl():
_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
These functions return a value whose absolute value matches that of x, but whose sign bit matches that of y.
For example, copysign(42.0, -1.0) and copysign(-42.0, -1.0) both return -42.0.
On success, these functions return a value whose magnitude is taken from x and whose sign is taken from y.
If x is a NaN, a NaN with the sign bit of y is returned.
For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).

C99, POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008. This function is defined in IEC 559 (and the appendix with recommended functions in IEEE 754/IEEE 854).
On architectures where the floating-point formats are not IEEE 754 compliant, these functions may treat a negative zero as positive.
