isnan, _isnan, _isnanf

 

Tests if a floating-point value is not a number (NAN).

int isnan(
   /* floating-point */ x 
); /* C-only macro */

int _isnan(
   double x 
);

int _isnanf(
   float x
); /* x64 only */

template <class T>
bool isnan(
   T x
) throw(); /* C++ only */

x

The floating-point value to test.

In C, the isnan macro and the _isnan and _isnanf functions return a nonzero value if the argument x is a NAN; otherwise they return 0.

In C++, the isnan template functions return true if the argument x is a NAN; otherwise they return false.

The C isnan macro and the _isnan and _isnanf functions test floating-point value x, returning a nonzero value if x is a Not a Number (NAN) value. A NAN is generated when the result of a floating-point operation can't be represented in IEEE-754 floating-point format for the specified type. For information about how a NAN is represented for output, see printf.

When compiled as C++, the isnan macro is not defined, and an isnan template function is defined instead. It returns a value of type bool instead of an integer.

The _isnan and _isnanf functions are Microsoft specific. The _isnanf function is only available when compiled for x64.
