   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       All functions described here:
              _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
              _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
              or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION
       The  normal  relation operations (like <, "less than") will fail if one
       of the operands is NaN.  This will cause an exception.  To avoid  this,
       C99 defines the macros listed below.

       These macros are guaranteed to evaluate their arguments only once.  The
       arguments must be of real floating-point type (note: do not pass  inte-
       ger  values  as arguments to these macros, since the arguments will not
       be promoted to real-floating types).

       isgreater()
              determines (x) > (y) without an exception if x or y is NaN.

       isgreaterequal()
              determines (x) >= (y) without an exception if x or y is NaN.

       isless()
              determines (x) < (y) without an exception if x or y is NaN.

       islessequal()
              determines (x) <= (y) without an exception if x or y is NaN.

       islessgreater()
              determines (x) < (y) || (x) > (y) without an exception if x or y
              is  NaN.   This  macro  is not equivalent to x != y because that
              expression is true if x or y is NaN.

       isunordered()

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001.

NOTES
       Not all hardware supports these functions, and where  hardware  support
       isn't provided, they will be emulated by macros.  This will result in a
       performance penalty.  Don't use these functions if NaN is of no concern
       for you.
