## PROLOG         top

```       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The
Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior),
or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

## NAME         top

```       isgreaterequal — test if x is greater than or equal to y
```

## SYNOPSIS         top

```       #include <math.h>

int isgreaterequal(real-floating x, real-floating y);
```

## DESCRIPTION         top

```       The functionality described on this reference page is aligned
with the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the requirements
described here and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This
volume of POSIX.1‐2017 defers to the ISO C standard.

The isgreaterequal() macro shall determine whether its first
argument is greater than or equal to its second argument. The
value of isgreaterequal(x, y) shall be equal to (x) ≥ (y);
however, unlike (x) ≥ (y), isgreaterequal(x, y) shall not raise
the invalid floating-point exception when x and y are unordered.
```

## RETURN VALUE         top

```       Upon successful completion, the isgreaterequal() macro shall
return the value of (x) ≥ (y).

If x or y is NaN, 0 shall be returned.
```

## ERRORS         top

```       No errors are defined.

The following sections are informative.

## EXAMPLES         top

```       None.
```

## APPLICATION USAGE         top

```       The relational and equality operators support the usual
mathematical relationships between numeric values. For any
ordered pair of numeric values, exactly one of the relationships
(less, greater, and equal) is true. Relational operators may
raise the invalid floating-point exception when argument values
are NaNs. For a NaN and a numeric value, or for two NaNs, just
the unordered relationship is true. This macro is a quiet (non-
floating-point exception raising) version of a relational
operator. It facilitates writing efficient code that accounts for
NaNs without suffering the invalid floating-point exception. In
the SYNOPSIS section, real-floating indicates that the argument
shall be an expression of real-floating type.
```

## RATIONALE         top

```       None.
```

## FUTURE DIRECTIONS         top

```       None.
