ISGREATER(3P)             POSIX Programmer's Manual            ISGREATER(3P)

PROLOG         top

       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
       corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or
       the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

NAME         top

       isgreater — test if x greater than y

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <math.h>

       int isgreater(real-floating x, real-floating y);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The functionality described on this reference page is aligned with
       the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the requirements described
       here and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This volume of
       POSIX.1‐2008 defers to the ISO C standard.

       The isgreater() macro shall determine whether its first argument is
       greater than its second argument. The value of isgreater(x, y) shall
       be equal to (x) > (y); however, unlike (x) > (y), isgreater(x, y)
       shall not raise the invalid floating-point exception when x and y are
       unordered.

RETURN VALUE         top

       Upon successful completion, the isgreater() macro shall return the
       value of (x) > (y).

       If x or y is NaN, 0 shall be returned.

ERRORS         top

       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES         top

       None.

APPLICATION USAGE         top

       The relational and equality operators support the usual mathematical
       relationships between numeric values. For any ordered pair of numeric
       values, exactly one of the relationships (less, greater, and equal)
       is true. Relational operators may raise the invalid floating-point
       exception when argument values are NaNs. For a NaN and a numeric
       value, or for two NaNs, just the unordered relationship is true. This
       macro is a quiet (non-floating-point exception raising) version of a
       relational operator. It facilitates writing efficient code that
       accounts for NaNs without suffering the invalid floating-point
       exception. In the SYNOPSIS section, real-floating indicates that the
       argument shall be an expression of real-floating type.

RATIONALE         top

       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS         top

       None.
