The FP_NORMAL, FP_SUBNORMAL, FP_ZERO, FP_INFINITE, FP_NAN macros each represent a distinct category of floating-point numbers. They all expand to an integer constant expression.

Constant Explanation
FP_NORMAL indicates that the value is normal, i.e. not an infinity, subnormal, not-a-number or zero
FP_SUBNORMAL indicates that the value is subnormal
FP_ZERO indicates that the value is positive or negative zero
FP_INFINITE indicates that the value is not representable by the underlying type (positive or negative infinity)
FP_NAN indicates that the value is not-a-number (NaN)
