       nan, nanf, nanl - return Not a Number


       double nan(const char *tagp);
       float nanf(const char *tagp);
       long double nanl(const char *tagp);

       Link with -lm.

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

       nan(),  nanf(),	nanl():  _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600  ||  _ISOC99_SOURCE;  or
       cc -std=c99

       These functions return a representation (determined by tagp) of a quiet
       NaN.   If  the  implementation does not support quiet NaNs, these func
       tions return zero.

       The  call  nan("char-sequence")	is  equivalent	to   strtod("NAN(char-
       sequence)",  NULL) and similarly calls to nanf() and nanl() are equiva
       lent to analogous calls to strtof(3) and strtold(3).

       The argument tagp is used in an unspecified manner.  On IEEE  754  sys
       tems,  there are many representations of NaN, and tagp selects one.  On
       other systems it may do nothing.

       C99.  See also IEC 559 and the appendix with recommended  functions  in
       IEEE 754/IEEE 854.
