       finite,	finitef, finitel, isinf, isinff, isinfl, isnan, isnanf, isnanl
       - BSD floating-point classification functions


       int finite(double x);
       int finitef(float x);
       int finitel(long double x);

       int isinf(double x);
       int isinff(float x);
       int isinfl(long double x);

       int isnan(double x);
       int isnanf(float x);
       int isnanl(long double x);

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

       finite(), finitef(), finitel(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE
       isinf(), isinff(), isinfl(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE
       isnan(), isnanf(), isnanl(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE ||

       The finite() functions return a non-zero value if x is neither infinite
       nor a "not-a-number" (NaN) value, and 0 otherwise.

       The isnan() functions return a non-zero value if x is a NaN value,  and
       0 otherwise.

       The  isinf()  functions	return 1 if x is positive infinity, -1 is x is
       negative infinity, and 0 otherwise.

       Note that these functions are obsolete.	C99 defines macros isfinite(),
       isinf(), and isnan() (for all types) replacing them.  Further note that
       the C99 isinf() has weaker guarantees on the return value.  See fpclas
