NAME fegetexceptflag, fesetexceptflag - get and set floating-point status flags

SYNOPSIS #include <fenv.h>

int fegetexceptflag(fexcept_t *flagp, int excepts); int fesetexceptflag(const fexcept_t *flagp, int excepts);

DESCRIPTION The fegetexceptflag() function shall attempt to store an implementa- tion-defined representation of the states of the floating-point status flags indicated by the argument excepts in the object pointed to by the argument flagp.

The fesetexceptflag() function shall attempt to set the floating-point status flags indicated by the argument excepts to the states stored in the object pointed to by flagp. The value pointed to by flagp shall have been set by a previous call to fegetexceptflag() whose second argument represented at least those floating-point exceptions repre- sented by the argument excepts. This function does not raise floating- point exceptions, but only sets the state of the flags.

RETURN VALUE If the representation was successfully stored, fegetexceptflag() shall return zero. Otherwise, it shall return a non-zero value. If the excepts argument is zero or if all the specified exceptions were suc- cessfully set, fesetexceptflag() shall return zero. Otherwise, it shall return a non-zero value.
