Generates a matrix of values that are not-a-number, or NaN, or indicates that a value is not-a-number. The IEEE standard for floating-point arithmetic defines NaN as the result of nonsensical operations.



Name Description
a Specifies the number of rows in c. a is a positive integer.
b Specifies the number of columns in c. b is a positive integer.


Name Description
c Returns an a-by-b matrix whose elements are all NaN. If you specify a but not b, c returns a square matrix of order a. If you do not specify an input, c returns a value of NaN.


The following table lists the support characteristics of this function.

Supported in the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine Yes
