The functionality of what was called (and I agree confusingly so)
"sign()" here is supplied by "signbit()" in C99.  That standard isn't
free, but the relevant part is incorporated in the free Open Group

The 754 standard says NaNs have sign bits, but assigns no meaning to
them.  In particular, the value of the sign bit of a NaN resulting from
a string->double routine applied to the string "nan" isn't defined by
754, or (AFAICT) by C99 either.
