NAME
feclearexcept() - clear floating-point exception flags SYNOPSIS
HP Integrity Server Only PA-RISC Only DESCRIPTION
The function clears the exception flags represented by its argument. The argument can be constructed as a bitwise OR of the exception macros: and represents all the floating-point exceptions. USAGE
To use this function, compile either with the default option or with the and options. Make sure your program includes For Integrity servers, specify on the compiler command line or place the call to this function under the effect of an affirmative pragma: If the pragma is placed outside of any top-level declarations in a file, the pragma will apply to all declarations in the compilation fol- lowing the pragma until another pragma is encountered or until the end of the file is reached. If the pragma is placed at the beginning of a block (compound statement), the pragma will apply until another pragma is encountered or until the end of the block is reached. For PA-RISC, you might need to use the +Onomoveflops compiler option in order to prevent optimizations that can undermine the specified behavior of this function. Link in the math library by specifying on the compiler or linker command line. For more information, see the RETURN VALUE
Integrity Server Only This function always returns 0, indicating all specified exceptions were cleared. PA-RISC Only None. ERRORS
No errors are defined. EXAMPLES
Clear the underflow and inexact floating-point exception flags: Clear all floating-point exception flags: SEE ALSO

NAME
fesetflushtozero() - set floating-point underflow mode SYNOPSIS
DESCRIPTION
The function sets the current underflow mode. If the argument is 1, the underflow mode is set to flush-to-zero mode. If the argument is zero, the underflow mode is set to IEEE-754-compliant (gradual) underflow mode. For arguments other than 1 or zero, the effect is unde- fined. The default underflow mode is IEEE-754-compliant. Flush-to-zero mode, also known as fast underflow mode, is supported on most PA1.1 systems and on all PA2.0 and HP Integrity servers. In IEEE-754-compliant mode, cases that might underflow may be handled by trapping into the kernel, where the IEEE-mandated conversion of the result into a denormalized value or zero is accomplished by software emulation. On PA-RISC systems, flush-to-zero mode allows the substitution of a zero for denormal operands and operation results, without trapping into the kernel. On Integrity servers, flush-to-zero mode causes a zero to be substituted for denormal results (but not operands), without trapping into the kernel. Flush-to-zero mode may offer a significant performance improvement for some applications. USAGE
To use this function, compile either with the default option or with the and options.
