[Gate-users] What about the finte() function

The finite function is there to check whether the iontime has a finite
value or not. It is not standard ANSI C, which is why it might be a
problem to compile it. Try replacing it with isfinite() and include
math.h in the header file. If that fails, you could replace it by
checking the boundaries explicitly.  
Try to search the archives, because this question has been answered 

All the best,
