Defined in header <math.h>
#define isless(x, y) /* implementation defined */
(since C99)

Determines if the floating point number x is less than the floating-point number y, without setting floating-point exceptions.

Contents

[edit] Parameters

x - floating point value
y - floating point value

[edit] Return value

Nonzero integral value if x < y, 0 otherwise

[edit] Notes

The built-in operator< for floating-point numbers may raise FE_INVALID if one or both of the arguments is NaN. This function is a "quiet" version of operator<.


[edit] Example

#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>
 
int main(void)
{
    printf("isless(2.0,1.0)      = %d\n", isless(2.0,1.0));
    printf("isless(1.0,2.0)      = %d\n", isless(1.0,2.0));
    printf("isless(INFINITY,1.0) = %d\n", isless(INFINITY,1.0));
    printf("isless(1.0,NAN)      = %d\n", isless(1.0,NAN));
 
    return 0;
}

Possible output:

isless(2.0,1.0)      = 0
isless(1.0,2.0)      = 1
isless(INFINITY,1.0) = 0
isless(1.0,NAN)      = 0
