Percentile

##### Checks if a value is (close to) zero or not

Checks if a value (or a vector of values) is (close to) zero or not where "close" means if the absolute value is less than neps*eps. Note that x == 0 will not work in all cases.

##### Arguments
x

A vector of values.

eps

The smallest possible floating point.

neps

A scale factor of eps specifying how close to zero "close" means. If eps is the smallest value such that 1 + eps != 1, i.e. .Machine$double.eps, neps must be greater or equal to one. ... Not used. ##### Value Returns a logical vector indicating if the elements are zero or not. ##### See Also all.equal(). Comparison. .Machine. ##### Aliases • isZero.default • isZero ##### Examples # NOT RUN { x <- 0 print(x == 0) # TRUE print(isZero(x)) # TRUE x <- 1 print(x == 0) # FALSE print(isZero(x)) # FALSE x <- .Machine$double.eps
print(x == 0)      # FALSE
print(isZero(x))   # FALSE

x <- 0.9*.Machine\$double.eps
print(x == 0)      # FALSE
print(isZero(x))   # TRUE

# From help(Comparisions)
x1 <- 0.5 - 0.3
x2 <- 0.3 - 0.1
print(x1 - x2)
print(x1 == x2)                           # FALSE on most machines
print(identical(all.equal(x1, x2), TRUE)) # TRUE everywhere
print(isZero(x1-x2))                      # TRUE everywhere
# }
