## 6 Operator Description

In addition to ISO/IEC TR 15580:1998(E), the module IEEE_ARITHMETIC
defines the ‘`==`

’ and ‘`/=`

’ operators for the
IEEE_CLASS_TYPE. These may be used to test the return value of the
IEEE_CLASS function.
For example,

USE,INTRINSIC :: IEEE_ARITHMETIC, ONLY: IEEE_CLASS, & IEEE_QUIET_NAN, OPERATOR(==) ... IF (IEEE_CLASS(X)==IEEE_QUIET_NAN) THEN ...

## 7 Procedure Description

ELEMENTAL TYPE(IEEE_CLASS_TYPE) FUNCTION IEEE_CLASS(X) REAL(any kind),INTENT(IN) :: XReturns the IEEE class that the value of X falls into.

ELEMENTAL REAL(KIND(X)) FUNCTION IEEE_COPY_SIGN(X,Y) REAL(*),INTENT(IN) :: X REAL(*),INTENT(IN) :: YReturns the value of X with the sign of Y. The result has the same kind as X.

**Restriction:** this function must not be invoked when the kind of `X`

or `Y`

is not an IEEE format, i.e.
if `IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE (X)`

or `IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE (Y)`

returns false.

ELEMENTAL REAL(KIND(A)) IEEE_FMA (A, B, C) REAL(*),INTENT(IN) :: A REAL(KIND(A)) :: B, CThe result is a fused multiply-add operation; its value is (

`A`

×`B`

)+`C`

with only one rounding.
That is, the whole operation is computed mathematically and only rounded to the format of `A`

at the end.
For example, `IEEE_OVERFLOW`

is not signalled if `A`

×`B`

overflows, but only if the
final result is out of range.
**Restriction:** this function must not be invoked when the kind of `A`

is not an IEEE format, i.e.
if `IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE (A)`

returns false.

USE,INTRINSIC :: IEEE_EXCEPTIONS,ONLY:IEEE_GET_FLAGSee IEEE_EXCEPTIONS for a description of this procedure.

USE,INTRINSIC :: IEEE_EXCEPTIONS,ONLY:IEEE_GET_HALTING_MODESee IEEE_EXCEPTIONS for a description of this procedure.

SUBROUTINE IEEE_GET_ROUNDING_MODE(ROUND_VALUE,RADIX) TYPE(IEEE_ROUND_TYPE),INTENT(OUT) :: ROUND_VALUE INTEGER(*),INTENT(IN),OPTIONAL :: RADIXSets ROUND_VALUE to the current rounding mode for the specified radix, which must be equal to two or ten, or to the binary rounding mode if

`RADIX`

is absent.
The rounding mode will be one of IEEE_AWAY, IEEE_DOWN, IEEE_NEAREST,
IEEE_OTHER, IEEE_TO_ZERO or IEEE_UP.
Note: The `RADIX`

argument is a Fortran 2018 addition.

SUBROUTINE IEEE_GET_UNDERFLOW_MODE(GRADUAL) LOGICAL,INTENT(OUT) :: GRADUALThis procedure was added in Fortran 2003. It sets

`GRADUAL`

to whether the current underflow mode permits gradual underflow (subnormal results),
rather than abrupt underflow (subnormal results flushed to zero).
It may only be invoked if `IEEE_SUPPORT_UNDERFLOW_CONTROL(X)`

is `.TRUE.`

for some kind of `X`

.
From Fortran 2018, `GRADUAL`

may be any kind of `LOGICAL`

.

USE,INTRINSIC :: IEEE_EXCEPTIONS,ONLY:IEEE_GET_STATUSSee IEEE_EXCEPTIONS for a description of this procedure.

ELEMENTAL FUNCTION IEEE_INT(A, ROUND, KIND) REAL(*),INTENT(IN) :: A TYPE(IEEE_ROUND_TYPE),INTENT(IN) :: ROUND INTEGER(*),OPTIONAL,INTENT(IN) :: KIND INTEGER(KIND) IEEE_INTThis procedure was added in Fortran 2018. It converts an IEEE Real value to Integer with a specific rounding mode. Note that the

`KIND`

argument must be a scalar constant expression; if it does not appear,
the result has default kind.
The value of `A`

is rounded to an integer using the rounding mode specified by `ROUND`

.
If that value is representable in the result kind, the result has that value;
otherwise, the result is processor-dependent and `IEEE_INVALID`

is signalled.

This operation is either the `convertToInteger{round}`

or the `convertToIntegerExact{round}`

operation specified by the IEEE standard.
If it is the latter, and `IEEE_INVALID`

was not signalled, but `A`

was not already an integer, `IEEE_INEXACT`

is signalled.

**Restriction:** this function must not be invoked when the kind of `A`

is not an IEEE format, i.e.
if `IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE (A)`

returns false.

ELEMENTAL LOGICAL FUNCTION IEEE_IS_FINITE(X) REAL(any kind),INTENT(IN) :: XReturns true if X is a finite number, i.e. neither an infinity nor a NaN.

**Restriction:** this function must not be invoked when the kind of `X`

is not an IEEE format, i.e.
if `IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE (X)`

returns false.

ELEMENTAL LOGICAL FUNCTION IEEE_IS_NAN(X) REAL(any kind),INTENT(IN) :: XReturns true if X is a NaN (either quiet or signalling).

**Restriction:** this function must not be invoked if `IEEE_SUPPORT_NAN (X)`

returns false.

ELEMENTAL LOGICAL FUNCTION IEEE_IS_NEGATIVE(X) REAL(any kind),INTENT(IN) :: XReturns true if X is negative, even for negative zero.

**Restriction:** this function must not be invoked when the kind of `X`

is not an IEEE format, i.e.
if `IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE (X)`

returns false.

ELEMENTAL LOGICAL FUNCTION IEEE_IS_NORMAL(X) REAL(any kind),INTENT(IN) :: XReturns if X is normal, i.e. not an infinity, a NaN, or denormal.

**Restriction:** this function must not be invoked when the kind of `X`

is not an IEEE format, i.e.
if `IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE (X)`

returns false.

ELEMENTAL REAL(kind) FUNCTION IEEE_LOGB(X) REAL(kind),INTENT(IN) :: XReturns the unbiased exponent of X. For normal, non-zero numbers this is the same as the EXPONENT(X)-1; for zero, IEEE_DIVIDE_BY_ZERO is signalled and the result is negative infinity (or -HUGE(X) if negative infinity is not available); for an infinity the result is positive infinity; for a NaN the result is a quiet NaN.

**Restriction:** this function must not be invoked when the kind of `X`

is not an IEEE format, i.e.
if `IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE (X)`

returns false.

ELEMENTAL FUNCTION IEEE_MAX_NUM(X, Y) RESULT(RESULT) ELEMENTAL FUNCTION IEEE_MAX_NUM_MAG(X, Y) RESULT(RESULT) ELEMENTAL FUNCTION IEEE_MIN_NUM(X, Y) RESULT(RESULT) ELEMENTAL FUNCTION IEEE_MIN_NUM_MAG(X, Y) RESULT(RESULT) ... REAL(*),INTENT(IN) :: X REAL(KIND(X)),INTENT(IN) :: Y REAL(KIND(X)) :: RESULT

These functions perform maximum/minimum operations ignoring NaN values.
If an argument is a signalling NaN, `IEEE_INVALID`

is raised,
if only one argument is a NaN, the result is the other argument;
only if both arguments are NaNs is the result a NaN.

The value of `IEEE_MAX_NUM`

is the maximum value of `X`

and `Y`

, ignoring NaN.
The value of `IEEE_MAX_NUM_MAG`

is whichever of `X`

and `Y`

has the greater magnitude.
The value of `IEEE_MIN_NUM`

is the minimum value of `X`

and `Y`

, ignoring NaN.
The value of `IEEE_MIN_NUM_MAG`

is whichever of `X`

and `Y`

has the smaller magnitude.

**Restriction:** these functions must not be invoked when the kind of `X`

is not an IEEE format, i.e.
if `IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE (X)`

returns false.

ELEMENTAL REAL(kind) FUNCTION IEEE_NEXT_AFTER(X,Y) REAL(kind),INTENT(IN) :: X REAL(kind),INTENT(IN) :: YReturns the closest machine-representable number to X (of the same kind as X) that is either greater than X (if X<Y) or less than X (if X>Y). If X and Y are equal, X is returned. If the result is subnormal,

`IEEE_UNDERFLOW`

is signalled.
If the result is infinite but `X`

is finite, `IEEE_OVERFLOW`

is signalled.
**Restriction:** this function must not be invoked when the kind of `X`

or `Y`

is not an IEEE format, i.e.
if `IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE (X)`

or `IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE (Y)`

returns false.

ELEMENTAL REAL(kind) FUNCTION IEEE_NEXT_DOWN(X) REAL(kind),INTENT(IN) :: XReturns the closest machine-representable number to X (of the same kind as X) that is less than X (unless X is −∞ or a NaN; if X is a signalling NaN the result is a quiet NaN, otherwise X is returned). No exception is signalled unless X is a signalling NaN. This function is from Fortran 2018.

ELEMENTAL REAL(kind) FUNCTION IEEE_NEXT_UP(X) REAL(kind),INTENT(IN) :: XReturns the closest machine-representable number to X (of the same kind as X) that is greater than X (unless X is +∞ or a NaN; if X is a signalling NaN the result is a quiet NaN, otherwise X is returned). No exception is signalled unless X is a signalling NaN. This function is from Fortran 2018.

ELEMENTAL FUNCTION IEEE_REAL(A, KIND) REAL(*),INTENT(IN) :: A INTEGER(*),OPTIONAL,INTENT(IN) :: KIND REAL(KIND) IEEE_REALThis procedure was added in Fortran 2018. It converts an Integer or IEEE format Real value to the specified IEEE format Real value. Note that the

`KIND`

argument must be a scalar constant expression; if it does not appear,
the result has default kind.
If the value of `A`

is representable in the kind of the result, that value is the result.
Otherwise, the value of `A`

is rounded to the kind of the result using the current rounding mode.

**Restriction:** this function must not be invoked when the kind of `A`

or the result is not an IEEE format,
i.e. if `IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE (A)`

or if `IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE(REAL(0,KIND))`

returns false.

ELEMENTAL REAL(kind) FUNCTION IEEE_REM(X,Y) REAL(kind),INTENT(IN) :: X REAL(kind),INTENT(IN) :: YThe result value is the exact remainder from the division X/Y, viz X-Y*N where N is the nearest integer to the true result of X/Y.

ELEMENTAL REAL(kind) FUNCTION IEEE_RINT(X,When[ROUND]) REAL(kind),INTENT(IN) :: X TYPE(IEEE_ROUND_TYPE),OPTIONAL,INTENT(IN) :: ROUND

`ROUND`

is present, the result is the value of `X`

rounded to an integer according to the
mode specified by `ROUND`

; this is the operation the IEEE standard calls `roundToIntegral{rounding}`

.
When `ROUND`

is absent, the result is the value of `X`

rounded to an integer according to the
current rounding mode; this is the operation the IEEE standard calls `roundToIntegralExact`

.
Note: The `ROUND`

argument is a Fortran 2018 addition.

**Restriction:** this function must not be invoked when the kind of `X`

is not an IEEE format, i.e.
if `IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE (X)`

returns false.

ELEMENTAL REAL(kind) FUNCTION IEEE_SCALB(X,I) REAL(kind),INTENT(IN) :: X INTEGER(any kind),INTENT(IN) :: IThe result is X*2**I without computing 2**I, with overflow or underflow exceptions signalled only if the end result overflows or underflows.

INTEGER FUNCTION IEEE_SELECTED_REAL_KIND(P,R,RADIX) INTEGER(any kind),INTENT(IN),OPTIONAL :: P INTEGER(any kind),INTENT(IN),OPTIONAL :: R INTEGER(any kind),INTENT(IN),OPTIONAL :: RADIXThe same as the intrinsic function SELECTED_REAL_KIND(P,R,RADIX), but only returns numbers of kinds for which IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE returns true.

USE,INTRINSIC :: IEEE_EXCEPTIONS,ONLY:IEEE_SET_FLAGSee IEEE_EXCEPTIONS for a description of this procedure.

USE,INTRINSIC :: IEEE_EXCEPTIONS,ONLY:IEEE_SET_HALTING_MODESee IEEE_EXCEPTIONS for a description of this procedure.

SUBROUTINE IEEE_SET_ROUNDING_MODE(ROUND_VALUE,RADIX) TYPE(IEEE_ROUND_TYPE),INTENT(IN) :: ROUND_VALUE INTEGER(*),INTENT(IN),OPTIONAL :: RADIX

Sets the current rounding mode for the specified radix to ROUND_VALUE;
if `RADIX`

is absent, the binary rounding mode is set.
The value of `RADIX`

must be equal to two or ten.

Note: The `RADIX`

argument is a Fortran 2018 addition.

**Restriction:** This subroutine must not be invoked unless there is some `X`

(with radix `RADIX`

if it is present)
for which both `IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE(X)`

and `IEEE_SUPPORT_ROUNDING(ROUND_VALUE,X)`

are true.

SUBROUTINE IEEE_SET_UNDERFLOW_MODE(GRADUAL) LOGICAL,INTENT(IN) :: GRADUALThis procedure was added in Fortran 2003. It sets the current underflow mode to “gradual underflow” (subnormal values may be produced) if

`GRADUAL`

is `.TRUE.`

, and to “abrupt underflow”
(subnormal results are flushed to zero) otherwise.
It may only be invoked if `IEEE_SUPPORT_UNDERFLOW_CONTROL(X)`

is `.TRUE.`

for some kind of `X`

.
From Fortran 2018, `GRADUAL`

may be any kind of `LOGICAL`

.

USE,INTRINSIC :: IEEE_EXCEPTIONS,ONLY:IEEE_SET_STATUSSee IEEE_EXCEPTIONS for a description of this procedure.

LOGICAL FUNCTION IEEE_SUPPORT_DATATYPE(X) REAL(any kind),INTENT(IN),OPTIONAL :: XReturns true if and only if all reals (if X is absent), or reals of the same kind as X conform to the IEEE standard for representation, addition, subtraction and multiplication when the operands and results have normal values.

`X`

is absent) or for reals of the same kind as `X`

.
