Description Christoph Hertzberg 2016-06-02 13:23:45 UTC
Before this stays unnoticed: clangs implementations of std::isinf and std::isnan appear to be unreliable. The easiest way for us would be to not use them for implementing the corresponding numext::isinf/isnan methods, but make hand-coded implementations.
Comment 1 Gael Guennebaud 2016-07-25 13:30:06 UTC
This only concerns "old" versions of clang. I've already spent a lot of time trying to workaround the issue with no luck, and I'd thus vote for wontfix. At least, we are consistent with the respective STL implementation. This is what I conclude in bug 1008.
Comment 2 Christoph Hertzberg 2016-07-25 14:15:24 UTC
If we have SSE enabled, we could hand-code this using the corresponding cmpss/cmpsd instructions.
If SSE is disabled, it seems the only error is:
  std::isinf(nan)    == 1 

which could be fixed by defining (inefficient, but correct):
  numext::isinf(x) = std::isinf(x) && ! std::isnan(x);

Unless, simply std::abs(x)>NumTraits<Scalar>::highest() works as well.
