feclearexcept[edit]

Prototype[edit]

int feclearexcept(int excepts);

Description[edit]

fegetenv[edit]

Prototype[edit]

int fegetenv(fenv_t *envp);

Description[edit]

This function attempts to store the current floating-point environment in the object pointed to by envp. If the representation was successfully stored, this function returns zero. Otherwise, it returns a non-zero value.

fesetenv[edit]

Prototype[edit]

int fesetenv(const fenv_t *envp);

Description[edit]

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