NAME

       isinf, isnan - test for infinity or not-a-number


SYNOPSIS

       #include <math.h>

       int isinf(extended);
       int isnan(extended);


DESCRIPTION

       The  isinf  function returns 1 if the number is +/- Infinity, otherwise
       0.

       The isnan function returns 1 if the number is not-a-number (NaN),  oth-
       erwise 0.

BUGS

       Neither  the VAX nor the Tahoe floating point have distinguished values
       for either infinity or not-a-number.  These routines always return 0 on
       those architectures.
