std::isgreater: std::isgreater


std::isgreater - std::isgreater


Defined in header <cmath>
bool isgreater( float x, float y ); (1) (since C++11)
bool isgreater( double x, double y ); (2) (since C++11)
bool isgreater( long double x, long double y ); (3) (since C++11)
bool isgreater( Arithmetic x, Arithmetic y ); (4) (since C++11)

1-3) Determines if the floating point number x is greater than the floating-point number y, without setting floating-point exceptions.
4) A set of overloads or a function template for all combinations of arguments of arithmetic type not covered by (1-3). If any argument has integral_type, it is cast to double.


x - floating point value
y - floating point value

Return value

true if x > y, false otherwise


The built-in operator> for floating-point numbers may set FE_INVALID if one or both of the arguments is NaN. This function is a "quiet" version of operator>.
