NAME fegetenv, fesetenv - get and set current floating-point environment

SYNOPSIS #include <fenv.h>

int fegetenv(fenv_t *envp); int fesetenv(const fenv_t *envp);

DESCRIPTION The fegetenv() function shall attempt to store the current floating- point environment in the object pointed to by envp.

The fesetenv() function shall attempt to establish the floating-point environment represented by the object pointed to by envp. The argument envp shall point to an object set by a call to fegetenv() or feholdex- cept(), or equal a floating-point environment macro. The fesetenv() function does not raise floating-point exceptions, but only installs the state of the floating-point status flags represented through its argument.

RETURN VALUE If the representation was successfully stored, fegetenv() shall return zero. Otherwise, it shall return a non-zero value. If the environment was successfully established, fesetenv() shall return zero. Otherwise, it shall return a non-zero value.
