Look at it from a different angle instead: how do you obtain the integer part so that you can subtract it from the original number? You can cast the float to an integer, or using the floor function, for example.

With c++11:

 

float number = 1.332;

float truncatedNumber = trunc(number);

float wantedNumber = number - truncatedNumber;

I can't think of any circumstances where you want the answer to be outside of [0,1), so I wouldn't use truncation.

True -- if negative numbers don't matter, floor would be preferred instead of trunc.

modf returns the fractional and integer part of a floating point number.

If you do it with subtraction then remember to check that it gives you the answer you want for negative numbers.

This is the solution i ended up using.
