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