Linux 2.6 - man page for feholdexcept (linux section 3posix)

FEHOLDEXCEPT(P) 		    POSIX Programmer's Manual			  FEHOLDEXCEPT(P)

NAME
       feholdexcept - save current floating-point environment

SYNOPSIS
       #include <fenv.h>

       int feholdexcept(fenv_t *envp);

DESCRIPTION
       The  feholdexcept()  function  shall  save  the	current floating-point environment in the
       object pointed to by envp, clear the floating-point status flags, and then install a  non-
       stop  (continue	on  floating-point exceptions) mode, if available, for all floating-point
       exceptions.

RETURN VALUE
       The feholdexcept() function shall return zero  if  and  only  if  non-stop  floating-point
       exception handling was successfully installed.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       None.

RATIONALE
       The  feholdexcept() function should be effective on typical IEC 60559:1989 standard imple-
       mentations which have the default non-stop mode and at least one other mode for trap  han-
       dling  or aborting. If the implementation provides only the non-stop mode, then installing
       the non-stop mode is trivial.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
