I came upon a confusing problem.

Given the function:

f(x) = x mod 1

Alternatively expressed as: f(x) = frac(x) or http://mathworld.wolfram.com/fimg85.gif (** this pic borrowed from examples found on this site)

What is this funcitons derivative???

d/dx f(x) or f'(x) = ???

I rationalized that the 'slope' of this function is monotonicly increasing and constant (baring the discontinuity about the inteteger points). So is this functions derivative constant??

Thanks for any help!!
