       isnand, isnanf - test for floating point NaN (Not-A-Number)

       int isnand (dsrc)
       double dsrc;

       int isnanf (fsrc)
       float fsrc;

       The and routines return the value 1 for true if the argument dsrc or fsrc is a NaN; otherwise they return the value 0 for false.

       Neither routine generates any exception, even for signaling NaNs.

       The function is implemented as a macro included in <ieeefp.h>.

isnand, isnanf, finite, fpclass, unordered - determine type of floating-point number SYNOPSIS
#include <ieeefp.h> int isnand(double dsrc); int isnanf(float fsrc); int finite(double dsrc); fpclass_t fpclass(double dsrc); int unordered(double dsrc1, double dsrc2); DESCRIPTION
The isnand() and isnanf() functions return TRUE(1) if the argument dsrc or fsrc is a NaN; otherwise they return FALSE(0). The fpclass() function returns one of the following classes to which dsrc belongs: FP_SNAN signaling NaN FP_QNAN quiet NaN FP_NINF negative infinity FP_PINF positive infinity FP_NDENORM negative denormalized non-zero FP_PDENORM positive denormalized non-zero FP_NZERO negative zero FP_PZERO positive zero FP_NNORM negative normalized non-zero FP_PNORM positive normalized non-zero The finite() function returns TRUE(1) if the argument dsrc is neither infinity nor NaN; otherwise it returns FALSE(0). The unordered() function returns TRUE(1) if one of its two arguments is unordered with respect to the other argument. This is equivalent to reporting whether either argument is NaN. If neither argument is NaN, FALSE(0) is returned. None of these functions generates an exception, even for signaling NaNs. RETURN VALUES
