boost::math::isfinite returns false for unsigned int 0

Reported by: Bob Carpenter <carp@…> Owned by: johnmaddock
Milestone: Boost 1.52.0 Component: math
Version: Boost 1.48.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: math isfinite Cc:


from: boost/math/distributions/detail/common_error_handling.hpp

(boost::math::isfinite)(0U) returns 0

(boost::math::isfinite)(1U) returns 1

To recreate the problem, the following program:

#include <iostream> #include <boost/math/distributions/detail/common_error_handling.hpp> int main(int argc, char* argv[]) {

std::cout << "isfinite(0U)=" << (boost::math::isfinite)(0U) << std::endl; std::cout << "isfinite(1U)=" << (boost::math::isfinite)(0U) << std::endl;



isfinite(0U)=0 isfinite(1U)=0

This can't happen with the std::isinf() tests because they only take floating point args, so the unsigned int would get cast.
