The stdlib_math module

Introduction

stdlib_math module provides general purpose mathematical functions.

Procedures and Methods provided

clip function

Description

Returns a value which lies in the given interval [xmin, xmax] (interval is xmin and xmax inclusive) and is closest to the input value x.

Syntax

res = clip (x, xmin, xmax)

Status

Experimental

Class

Elemental function.

Argument(s)

x: scalar of either integer or real type. This argument is intent(in).
xmin: scalar of either integer or real type. This argument is intent(in).
xmax: scalar of either integer or real type, which must be greater than or equal to xmin. This argument is intent(in).

Note: All arguments must have same type and same kind.

Output value or Result value

The output is a scalar of type and kind same as to that of the arguments.

Examples

Example 1:

Here inputs are of type integer and kind int32

program demo_clip_integer
  use stdlib_math, only: clip
  use stdlib_kinds, only: int32
  implicit none
  integer(int32) :: x
  integer(int32) :: xmin
  integer(int32) :: xmax
  integer(int32) :: clipped_value

  xmin = -5_int32
  xmax = 5_int32
  x = 12_int32

  clipped_value = clip(x, xmin, xmax)
  ! clipped_value <- 5
end program demo_clip_integer
Example 2:

Here inputs are of type real and kind sp

program demo_clip_real
  use stdlib_math, only: clip
  use stdlib_kinds, only: sp
  implicit none
  real(sp) :: x
  real(sp) :: xmin
  real(sp) :: xmax
  real(sp) :: clipped_value

  xmin = -5.769_sp
  xmax = 3.025_sp
  x = 3.025_sp

  clipped_value = clip(x, xmin, xmax)
  ! clipped_value <- 3.02500010
end program demo_clip_real
