signbit - test sign of a real floating point number
Compile with -std=c99; link with -lm.
signbit() is a generic macro which can work on all real floating-point
types. It returns a non-zero value if the value of x has its sign bit
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 sign-
bit(-0.0) will return a non-zero value.
C99. This function is defined in IEC 559 (and the appendix with recom-
mended functions in IEEE 754/IEEE 854).
