This short note is just a reminder that GCC totally ignores functions isinf and isnan when you compile your code with -ffast-math option. The demo code can be found here. One should also be aware that -ffast-math is enabled by a commonly used option -Ofast, but not by -ON option, where N is a number. I also wrote custom checking functions that do not have such problem.
