SIGNBIT

Section: Linux Programmer's Manual (3)
Updated: 2015-03-02

NAME

signbit - test sign of a real floating-point number  

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>

int signbit(x);

Link with -lm.

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

signbit():

_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99
 

DESCRIPTION

signbit() is a generic macro which can work on all real floating-point types. It returns a nonzero value if the value of x has its sign bit set.

This is not the same as x < 0.0, because IEEE 754 floating point allows zero to be signed. The comparison -0.0 < 0.0 is false, but signbit(-0.0) will return a nonzero value.

NaNs and infinities have a sign bit.  

RETURN VALUE

The signbit() macro returns nonzero if the sign of x is negative; otherwise it returns zero.  

ERRORS

No errors occur.
