If you have PHP lower than 4.2 you can simulate the behaviour:

function is_infinite($value) {
   return (substr("$value",-3) == "INF");

(tested on php 4.1.2)

@ david,

That will return true for any string ending with "INF".
I think substr("$value",0,3) would be more appropriate.

Actually any string ending in INF is more appropriate than any string beginning with INF.  Since negative infinity evaluates to "-INF" but it is still infinite.  However in either case the STRING "INF" is not infinite, only a float that converts to "INF" or "-INF" is infinite.

A more appropriate function might be:
if (!is_defined('is_infinite')) { function is_infinite($val) {
    return (
is_float($val) and ("$val"=='INF' or "$val"=='-INF'));
} }
* However the above function is untested.

fastest version to php <4.2:
<?php function is_infinite($v){$v=$v>>0;return -9e1000==$v||$v==9e1000;}; ?>

the $v=$v>>0; is just to ensure it is a number and its not mandatory.
effectively, the function can be reduced to:
<?php function is_infinite($v){return -9e1000==$v||$v==9e1000;}; ?>

this works because any number that is too big or too small for a float is considered to be infinite or -infinite.
