Numeric Predicate Functions

These predicate functions perform various numeric comparisons and either succeed returning a null string or cause statement failure. Any of these functions can be redefined by the user.

Note that the floating point NAN (Not A Number) cannot be compared so it will terminate your program with an error. Use the IDENT or DIFFER predicate functions described below when testing for a NAN.
