NAME
signbit - test sign of a real floating-point number SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h> int signbit(x); Link with -lm. Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): signbit(): _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L DESCRIPTION
signbit() is a generic macro which can work on all real floating-point types. It returns a nonzero value if the value of x has its sign bit set. This is not the same as x < 0.0, because IEEE 754 floating point allows zero to be signed. The comparison -0.0 < 0.0 is false, but sign- bit(-0.0) will return a nonzero value. NaNs and infinities have a sign bit. RETURN VALUE
The signbit() macro returns nonzero if the sign of x is negative; otherwise it returns zero. ERRORS
No errors occur. ATTRIBUTES
