Abstract
This paper describes C programs for the support functions copysign(x,y ), logb(x), scalb(x,n), nextafter(x,y), finite(x), and isnan(x) recomm ended in the Appendix to the IEEE Standard for Binary Floating-Point A rithmetic. In the case of logb, the modified definition given in the l ater IEEE Standard for Radix-Independent Floating-Point Arithmetic is followed. These programs should run without modification on most syste ms conforming to the binary standard.
