ISINFF(3)                BSD Library Functions Manual                ISINFF(3)

NAME
     isinff, isnanf -- test for infinity or not-a-number

LIBRARY
     Math Library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <math.h>

     int
     isinff(float);

     int
     isnanf(float);

DESCRIPTION
     The isinff() function returns 1 if the number is ``infinity'', otherwise
     0.

     The isnanf() function returns 1 if the number is ``not-a-number'',
     otherwise 0.

SEE ALSO
     isinf(3), isnan(3), math(3)

     IEEE Standard for Binary Floating-Point Arithmetic, Std 754-1985, ANSI.

BUGS
     Neither the VAX nor the Tahoe floating point have distinguished values
     for either infinity or not-a-number.  These routines always return 0 on
     those architectures.
