nan -- generate a quiet NaN SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> double nan(const char *tagp); float nanf(const char *tagp); DESCRIPTION
The nan() and nanf() functions return a quiet NaN. The character string tagp is converted to an integer, which is clipped to the range 0 to 255, inclusive. This value is used as the NaN code. The NaN code is placed in the 8th through 15th most significant bits of the fraction field of the resulting NaN. SPECIAL VALUES
If tagp is empty, 0 is used for the NaN code. STANDARDS
The nan() and nanf functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1999(E). BSD

nan, nanf, nanl - return quiet NaN SYNOPSIS
c99 [ flag... ] file... -lm [ library... ] #include <math.h> double nan(const char *tagp); float nanf(const char *tagp); long double nanl(const char *tagp); DESCRIPTION
The function call nan("n-char-sequence") is equivalent to: strtod("NAN(n-char-sequence)", (char **) NULL); The function call nan(" ") is equivalent to: strtod("NAN()", (char **) NULL) If tagp does not point to an n-char sequence or an empty string, the function call is equivalent to: strtod("NAN", (char **) NULL) Function calls to nanf() and nanl() are equivalent to the corresponding function calls to strtof() and strtold(). See strtod(3C). RETURN VALUES
These functions return a quiet NaN. ERRORS
No errors are defined. ATTRIBUTES
