INFINITY(3)		   Linux Programmer's Manual		   INFINITY(3)

NAME
       INFINITY,  NAN,	HUGE_VAL,  HUGE_VALF,  HUGE_VALL - floating-point con‐
       stants

SYNOPSIS
       #define _ISOC99_SOURCE	   /* See feature_test_macros(7) */
       #include <math.h>

       INFINITY

       NAN

       HUGE_VAL
       HUGE_VALF
       HUGE_VALL

DESCRIPTION
       The macro INFINITY expands to a float  constant	representing  positive
       infinity.

       The  macro  NAN	expands	 to  a float constant representing a quiet NaN
       (when supported).  A quiet NaN is a NaN ("not-a-number") that does  not
       raise exceptions when it is used in arithmetic.	The opposite is a sig‐
       naling NaN.  See IEC 60559:1989.

       The macros HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, HUGE_VALL expand to constants of	 types
       double,	float  and  long  double, respectively, that represent a large
       positive value, possibly plus infinity.

CONFORMING TO
       C99.

AVAILABILITY
       On a glibc system, the macro HUGE_VAL is always available.   Availabil‐
       ity  of the NAN macro can be tested using #ifdef NAN, and similarly for
       INFINITY, HUGE_VALF, HUGE_VALL.	They will be defined  by  <math.h>  if
       _ISOC99_SOURCE  or  _GNU_SOURCE	is  defined,  or  __STDC_VERSION__  is
       defined and has a value not less than 199901L.
