isgreater, isgreaterequal, isless, islessequal, islessgreater, isunordered - floating-point relational tests without exception for NaNSYNOPSIS

#include <math.h> int isgreater(x, y); int isgreaterequal(x, y); int isless(x, y); int islessequal(x, y); int islessgreater(x, y); int isunordered(x, y); Link withFeature 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-lm.-std=c99DESCRIPTION

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 these macros. The macros are guaranteed to evaluate their operands only once. The operands can be of any real floating- point type. 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() determines whether its arguments are unordered, that is, whether at least one of the arguments is a NaN.RETURN VALUE

The macros other than isunordered() return the result of the relational comparison; these macros return 0 if either argument is a NaN. isunordered() returns 1 if x or y is NaN and 0 otherwise.ERRORS

No errors occur.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.SEE ALSO
