Defined in header <cmath>
#define HUGE_VALF /*implementation defined*/
(since C++11)
#define HUGE_VAL  /*implementation defined*/
#define HUGE_VALL /*implementation defined*/
(since C++11)

The HUGE_VALF, HUGE_VAL and HUGE_VALL macros expand to positive floating point constant expressions which compare equal to the values returned by floating-point functions and operators in case of overflow.

Constant Explanation
HUGE_VALF Expands to positive float expression that indicates overflow
HUGE_VAL Expands to positive double expression that indicates overflow, not necessarily representable as a float
HUGE_VALL Expands to positive long double expression that indicates overflow, not necessarily representable as a float or double

On implementations that support floating-point infinities, these macros always expand to the positive infinities of float, double, and long double, respectively.
