Example

 Live Demo

Following example shows that 100 is not an infinite number

<?php
   $val=100;
   $ret=is_infinite($val);
   if ($ret==TRUE) {
      echo $val . " is an infinite number". "\n";

Value of log(0) is undefined. Following example verifies if it is an infinite number −

<?php
   $val=log(0);
   var_dump (is_infinite($val));
?>

Output

This will produce following result −

bool(true)

Example

 Live Demo

Since cos(x) is between -1 and 1, acos() for parameter outside this range is NAN. −

<?php
   $val=acos(5);
   var_dump (is_infinite($val));
?>

Output

This will produce following result −

bool(false)

Example

 Live Demo

Similarly sqrt(-1) produces NAN and hence is_infinite() function returns false −

<?php
   $val=sqrt(-1);
   $ret=is_infinite($val);
   if ($ret==TRUE) {
      echo $val . " is an infinite number". "\n";
   } else {
      echo $val . " is not an infinite number". "\n";
   }
?>

Output

This will produce following result −

NAN is not an infinite number
