I've been working on a PHP project and I recently came across the fmod() function. I've tried reading the PHP manual, but I'm still a bit confused about how it works and what it does exactly. I was hoping someone could shed some light on this for me.
To give you some context, I'm building a financial application where I need to perform calculations involving floating-point numbers. I discovered the fmod() function, but I'm not sure if it's the right choice for my requirements.
From what I understand, fmod() calculates the remainder of a division between two numbers. Is that correct? How is it different from the % operator used for modulus calculation? Can it handle non-integer numbers and produce accurate results?
It would be so helpful if you could explain in simple terms how I can use the fmod() function effectively in my PHP project. If possible, please provide an example that demonstrates the function usage.
I really appreciate your time and any assistance you can provide. Thank you!
