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

Determines if the floating point number x is less than or greater 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 || x > y, 0 otherwise.

[edit] Notes

The built-in operator< and 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 the expression x < y || x > y. The macro does not evaluate x and y twice.

[edit] Example

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

Possible output:

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