ISFINITE(3P)               POSIX Programmer's Manual              ISFINITE(3P)



PROLOG
       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux implementation of this interface may dif-
       fer (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface  may  not  be
       implemented on Linux.

NAME
       isfinite - test for finite value

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       int isfinite(real-floating x);


DESCRIPTION
       The  isfinite()  macro shall determine whether its argument has a finite value (zero, subnormal, or normal, and
       not infinite or NaN). First, an argument represented in a format wider than its semantic type is  converted  to
       its semantic type. Then determination is based on the type of the argument.

RETURN VALUE
       The isfinite() macro shall return a non-zero value if and only if its argument has a finite value.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
