nan -- generate a quiet NaN SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> double nan(const char *tagp); long double nanl(const char *tagp); float nanf(const char *tagp); DESCRIPTION
The nan() functions return a quiet NaN, whose trailing fraction field contains the result of converting tagp to an unsigned integer. If tagp is too large to be contained in the trailing fraction field of the NaN, then the least significant bits of the integer represented by tagp are used. SPECIAL VALUES
If tagp contains any non-numeric characters, the function returns a NaN whos trailing fraction field is zero. If tagp is empty, the function returns a NaN whos trailing fraction field is zero. STANDARDS
The nan() functions conform to ISO/IEC 9899:2011. 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
