A method or operator returns NaN when the result of an operation is undefined. For example, the result of dividing zero by zero is NaN, as the following example shows. (But note that dividing a non-zero number by zero returns either PositiveInfinity or NegativeInfinity, depending on the sign of the divisor.)
No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
Use the IsNaN method to determine whether a value is not a number. The Equality operator considers two NaN values to be unequal to one another. In general, Double operators cannot be used to compare Double::NaN with other Double values, although comparison methods (such as Equals and CompareTo) can. The following example illustrates the difference in behavior between Double comparison operators and methods.
Double zero = 0;
// This condition will return false.if ( (0 / zero) == Double::NaN )
Console::WriteLine( "0 / 0 can be tested with Double::NaN." );
Console::WriteLine( "0 / 0 cannot be tested with Double::NaN; use Double::IsNan() instead." );
