# Function `std.math.operations.nextafter`

Calculates the next representable value after x in the direction of y.

``` T nextafter(T) (   const T x,   const T y ) pure nothrow @nogc @safe; ```

If y > x, the result will be the next largest floating-point value; if y < x, the result will be the next smallest value. If x == y, the result is y. If x or y is a NaN, the result is a NaN.

## Remarks

This function is not generally very useful; it's almost always better to use the faster functions nextUp() or nextDown() instead.

The FE_INEXACT and FE_OVERFLOW exceptions will be raised if x is finite and the function result is infinite. The FE_INEXACT and FE_UNDERFLOW exceptions will be raised if the function value is subnormal, and x is not equal to y.

## Example

``````import std.math.traits : isNaN;

float a = 1;
assert(is(typeof(nextafter(a, a)) == float));
assert(nextafter(a, a.infinity) > a);
assert(isNaN(nextafter(a, a.nan)));
assert(isNaN(nextafter(a.nan, a)));

double b = 2;
assert(is(typeof(nextafter(b, b)) == double));
assert(nextafter(b, b.infinity) > b);
assert(isNaN(nextafter(b, b.nan)));
assert(isNaN(nextafter(b.nan, b)));

real c = 3;
assert(is(typeof(nextafter(c, c)) == real));
assert(nextafter(c, c.infinity) > c);
assert(isNaN(nextafter(c, c.nan)));
assert(isNaN(nextafter(c.nan, c)));
``````
