Find the minimum of a set of integers.
Variable I/O Description -------- --- -------------------------------------------------- n I The number of integer values to compare. ... I The numbers to be compared, separated by commas.
n is the number of integer values in the set whose minimum is to be determined. ... represents a variable argument list. The number of integer values supplied must be that indicated by n. The values are separated by commas. Section 22.214.171.124 of the ANSI C Standard, titled "Translation Limits," specifies that argument lists containing at least 31 items must be supported. In the interest of portability, no more than 30 integer values should be supplied.
The function returns the minimum of the set of input integers.
1) Find the minimum of four integer values. #include "SpiceUsr.h" . . . SpiceInt min; SpiceInt a; SpiceInt b; SpiceInt c; SpiceInt d; . . . min = mini_c ( 4, a, b, c, d );
1) The ANSI C Standard specifies that argument lists containing 31 actual arguments must be supported. Larger sets of values may not be handled properly by this routine.
Error free. 1) If n is less than 1, the value 0 is returned. 2) If the number of integer values supplied does not match the argument n, the action of this routine is not defined. 3) If the number of integer values supplied exceeds 30, the action of this routine is not defined.
