NAME
fetestexcept() - test floating-point exceptions SYNOPSIS
DESCRIPTION
The function determines which of a specified subset of the floating-point exception flags are currently set. The excepts argument speci- fies the floating-point exception flags to be queried. The argument can be constructed as a bitwise OR of the exception macros: and repre- sents 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 HP 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 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 at the following site: RETURN VALUE
The function returns the bitwise OR of the exception macros corresponding to the currently set floating-point exceptions included in excepts. ERRORS
No errors are defined. EXAMPLES
Call if invalid is set, then if overflow is set: SEE ALSO

NAME
fegetexceptflag() - get floating-point exception flags SYNOPSIS
HP Integrity Server Only PA-RISC Only DESCRIPTION
The function stores a representation of the states of the floating-point exception flags indicated by the argument excepts in the object pointed to by the argument flagp. The excepts argument can be constructed as a bitwise OR of the floating-point exception macros: and rep- resents all the floating-point exceptions. The object into which the floating-point exception flags are stored can be passed to to restore the system exception flags, but the representation of the floating-point exception flags stored in the object is otherwise unspecified. Use instead of to determine which floating-point exception flags are set. USAGE
