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

NAME
       nan, nanf, nanl - return 'Not a Number'

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double nan(const char *tagp);
       float nanf(const char *tagp);
       long double nanl(const char *tagp);

       Link with -lm.

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

       nan(), nanf(), nanl():
           _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L

DESCRIPTION
       These functions return a representation (determined by tagp) of a quiet
       NaN.  If the implementation does not support quiet  NaNs,  these  func-
       tions return zero.

       The call nan("char-sequence") is equivalent to:

           strtod("NAN(char-sequence)", NULL);

       Similarly, calls to nanf() and nanl() are equivalent to analogous calls
       to strtof(3) and strtold(3).

       The argument tagp is used in an unspecified manner.  On IEEE  754  sys-
       tems,  there are many representations of NaN, and tagp selects one.  On
       other systems it may do nothing.

VERSIONS
       These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
