FPCLASSIFY(3) BSD Library Functions Manual FPCLASSIFY(3)[top]NAMEfpclassify, isfinite, isinf, isnan, isnormal — classify a floating-point numberLIBRARYMath Library (libm, -lm)SYNOPSIS#include <math.h> int fpclassify(real-floating x); int isfinite(real-floating x); int isinf(real-floating x); int isnan(real-floating x); int isnormal(real-floating x);DESCRIPTIONThe fpclassify() macro takes an argument of x and returns one of the fol‐ lowing manifest constants. FP_INFINITE Indicates that x is an infinite number. FP_NAN Indicates that x is not a number (NaN). FP_NORMAL Indicates that x is a normalized number. FP_SUBNORMAL Indicates that x is a denormalized number. FP_ZERO Indicates that x is zero (0 or -0). The isfinite() macro returns a non-zero value if and only if its argument has a finite (zero, subnormal, or normal) value. The isinf(), isnan(), and isnormal() macros return non-zero if and only if x is an infinity, NaN, or a non-zero normalized number, respectively. The symbol isnanf() is provided as an alias to isnan() for compatibility, and its use is deprecated. Similarly, finite() and finitef() are depre‐ cated versions of isfinite().SEE ALSOisgreater(3), math(3), signbit(3)STANDARDSThe fpclassify(), isfinite(), isinf(), isnan(), and isnormal() macros conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (“ISO C99”).HISTORYThe fpclassify(), isfinite(), isinf(), isnan(), and isnormal() macros were added in FreeBSD 5.1. 3BSD introduced isinf() and isnan() func‐ tions, which accepted double arguments; these have been superseded by the macros described above.BSDJanuary 26, 2005 BSD
