isgreaterequal - test if x is greater than or equal to y
int isgreaterequal(real-floating x, real-floating y);
The isgreaterequal() macro shall determine whether its first argument is greater than or
equal to its second argument. The value of isgreaterequal( x, y) shall be equal to
(x) >= (y); however, unlike (x) >= (y), isgreaterequal( x, y) shall not raise the invalid
floating-point exception when x and y are unordered.
Upon successful completion, the isgreaterequal() macro shall return the value of
(x) >= (y).
If x or y is NaN, 0 shall be returned.
No errors are defined.
The following sections are informative.
The relational and equality operators support the usual mathematical relationships between
numeric values. For any ordered pair of numeric values, exactly one of the relationships
(less, greater, and equal) is true. Relational operators may raise the invalid floating-
point exception when argument values are NaNs. For a NaN and a numeric value, or for two
NaNs, just the unordered relationship is true. This macro is a quiet (non-floating-point
exception raising) version of a relational operator. It facilitates writing efficient code
that accounts for NaNs without suffering the invalid floating-point exception. In the SYN-
OPSIS section, real-floating indicates that the argument shall be an expression of real-
isgreater() , isless() , islessequal() , islessgreater() , isunordered() , the Base Defi-
