SIGNBIT(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		       SIGNBIT(3)

NAME
     signbit -- test sign

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <math.h>

     int
     signbit(real-floating x);

DESCRIPTION
     The signbit() macro determines whether the sign of its argument value x is negative.  An
     argument represented in a format wider than its semantic type is converted to its semantic
     type first.  The determination is then based on the type of the argument.

   IEEE754
     The sign is determined for all values, including infinities, zeroes, and NaNs

   VAX
     The sign is determined for finites, true zeros, and dirty zeroes; for ROPs the sign is
     reported negative.

RETURN VALUES
     The signbit() macro returns a non-zero value if the sign of its value x is negative.  Other-
     wise 0 is returned.

ERRORS
     No errors are defined.

SEE ALSO
     fpclassify(3), isfinite(3), isnormal(3), math(3)

STANDARDS
     The signbit() macro conforms to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99'').
