NAME fpclassify - classify real floating type

SYNOPSIS #include <math.h>

int fpclassify(real-floating x);

DESCRIPTION The fpclassify() macro shall classify its argument value as NaN, infi- nite, normal, subnormal, zero, or into another implementation-defined category. First, an argument represented in a format wider than its semantic type is converted to its semantic type. Then classification is based on the type of the argument.

RETURN VALUE The fpclassify() macro shall return the value of the number classifica- tion macro appropriate to the value of its argument.

ERRORS No errors are defined.

The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES None.

APPLICATION USAGE None.

RATIONALE None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS None.
