See the notes at the beginning of this chapter or section for information on using printf() or scanf() (and other functions reading and writing the stdin or stdout streams) in the example code.

#include <math.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
  double x, y, z;

  x = 5.0;
  y = 0.0;
  z = x / y;
  if(isinf(z))
    printf("Infinity detected in division of %f by %f\n", x, y);
}

Example Output
