# [pstricks] Testing a number

Is there a way to test is a number is zero, positive or negative? I tried this using the FP package as follows.

\def\test#1{\FPifzero{#1} 0 \else \FPifpos{#1} 1 \else -1 \fi \fi}

It works if the number is positive or negative but gives a Tex error about an extra \fi if the input is zero.

Thanks.
