**fpclassify**

cation macros
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>
int fpclassify(x);
int isfinite(x);
int isnormal(x);
int isnan(x);
int isinf(x);
Link with -lm.
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see **feature_test_macros(7)**):
fpclassify(), isfinite(), isnormal():
_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99
isnan():
_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99
isinf():
_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 ||
_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99
DESCRIPTION
Floating point numbers can have special values, such as infinite or
NaN. With the macro fpclassify(x) you can find out what type x is.
The macro takes any floating-point expression as argument. The result
is one of the following values:
FP_NAN x is "Not a Number".
FP_INFINITE x is either positive infinity or negative infinity.
FP_ZERO x is zero.
FP_SUBNORMAL x is too small to be represented in normalized format.
FP_NORMAL if nothing of the above is correct then it must be a nor-
mal floating-point number.
The other macros provide a short answer to some standard questions.
isfinite(x) returns a nonzero value if
(fpclassify(x) != FP_NAN && fpclassify(x) != FP_INFINITE)
CONFORMING TO
C99, POSIX.1.
For isinf(), the standards merely say that the return value is nonzero
if and only if the argument has an infinite value.
NOTES
In glibc 2.01 and earlier, isinf() returns a nonzero value (actually:
1) if x is positive infinity or negative infinity. (This is all that
C99 requires.)
