PROLOG This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer s Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

NAME fetestexcept - test floating-point exception flags

SYNOPSIS #include <fenv.h>

int fetestexcept(int excepts);

DESCRIPTION The fetestexcept() function shall determine which of a specified subset of the floating-point exception flags are currently set. The excepts argument specifies the floating-point status flags to be queried.

RETURN VALUE The fetestexcept() function shall return the value of the bitwise- inclusive OR of the floating-point exception macros corresponding to the currently set floating-point exceptions included in excepts.

ERRORS No errors are defined.

The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES The following example calls function f() if an invalid exception is set, and then function g() if an overflow exception is set:

#include <fenv.h> /* ... */ { #pragma STDC FENV_ACCESS ON int set_excepts; feclearexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_OVERFLOW); // maybe raise exceptions set_excepts = fetestexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_OVERFLOW); if (set_excepts & FE_INVALID) f(); if (set_excepts & FE_OVERFLOW) g(); /* ... */ }

APPLICATION USAGE None.

RATIONALE None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS None.
