it's in my my /usr/include/math.h. Unfortunately, the macros just are
wrappers so that it calls the right internal functions depending on
the argument type (by making use of sizeof's, obviously a template
would be better for allowing for user defined types). The code for
the internal functions is surely avaliable (just find a source tarball
for a recent version of glibc (mine is glibc-devel-2.2.2-10)).
Unfortunately, it's probably useless. I think the relevant question
is how common is fpclassify isnan and isinf support in compilers such
as MS's?
