Re: ifort functions for test NaN and Inf


As if by magic, ddb78s@xxxxxxxxx appeared !

Anybody knows an intrinsic function for testing if a variable is
-+INF. I have found in the reference the function ISNAN but not the
equivalent for INF.

ISNAN is not standard. To perform either of these tests you will either
need a non-standard extension ( e.g. ISNAN ), so look in your compiler
docs, or, and much better, use the IEEE stuff in Fortran 2003. See

However your compiler might not support this yet,
