dlaisnan: routine i not for general use

NAME

DLAISNAN - routine i not for general use

SYNOPSIS

LOGICAL FUNCTION
DLAISNAN(DIN1,DIN2)

    
DOUBLE PRECISION DIN1,DIN2

PURPOSE

This routine is not for general use. It exists solely to avoid over-optimization in DISNAN.
DLAISNAN checks for NaNs by comparing its two arguments for inequality. NaN is the only floating-point value where NaN != NaN returns .TRUE. To check for NaNs, pass the same variable as both arguments.
A compiler must assume that the two arguments are
not the same variable, and the test will not be optimized away. Interprocedural or whole-program optimization may delete this test. The ISNAN functions will be replaced by the correct Fortran 03 intrinsic once the intrinsic is widely available.

ARGUMENTS

DIN1 (input) DOUBLE PRECISION
DIN2 (input) DOUBLE PRECISION Two numbers to compare for inequality.
