_isnan

Checks a given double-precision floating-point value for not a number (NAN).

int _isnan( 
   double x  
);

Parameters

  • x
    Double-precision floating-point value.

Return Value

_isnan returns a nonzero value if the argument x is a NAN; otherwise it returns 0.

Remarks

The _isnan function tests a given double-precision floating-point value x, returning a nonzero value if x is a not a number (NAN). A NAN is generated when the result of a floating-point operation cannot be represented in Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) format. For information about how a NAN is represented for output, see printf.
