SIGNBIT(3) Library Functions Manual SIGNBIT(3)
signbit -- test sign
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
The signbit() macro determines whether the sign of its argument value x
is negative. An argument represented in a format wider than its semantic
type is converted to its semantic type first. The determination is then
based on the type of the argument.
The sign is determined for all values, including infinities, zeroes, and
The sign is determined for finites, true zeros, and dirty zeroes; for
ROPs the sign is reported negative.
The signbit() macro returns a non-zero value if the sign of its value x
is negative. Otherwise 0 is returned.
No errors are defined.
