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



NAME
       finite,  finitef,  finitel,  isinf,  isinff,  isinfl, isnan, isnanf, isnanl - BSD floating-point classification
       functions

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       int finite(double x);
       int finitef(float x);
       int finitel(long double x);

       int isinf(double x);
       int isinff(float x);
       int isinfl(long double x);

       int isnan(double x);
       int isnanf(float x);
       int isnanl(long double x);

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

       finite(), finitef(), finitel(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE
       isinf(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE; cc -std=c99
       isinff(), isinfl(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE
       isnan(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE || _ISOC99_SOURCE; cc -std=c99
       isnanf(), isnanl(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600

DESCRIPTION
       The finite() functions return a non-zero value if x is neither infinite nor a "not-a-number" (NaN) value, and 0
       otherwise.

       The isnan() functions return a non-zero value if x is a NaN value, and 0 otherwise.

       The isinf() functions return 1 if x is positive infinity, -1 if x is negative infinity, and 0 otherwise.

NOTES
       Note  that  these  functions are obsolete.  C99 defines macros isfinite(), isinf(), and isnan() (for all types)
       replacing them.  Further note that the C99 isinf() has weaker guarantees on  the  return  value.   See  fpclas-
       sify(3).
