NAME
feraiseexcept - raise floating-point exception SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lm [ library... ] #include <fenv.h> int feraiseexcept(int excepts); DESCRIPTION
The feraiseexcept() function attempts to raise the supported floating-point exceptions represented by the excepts argument. The order in which these floating-point exceptions are raised is unspecified. RETURN VALUES
If excepts is 0 or if all the specified exceptions were successfully raised, feraiseexcept() returns 0. Otherwise, it returns a non-zero value. ERRORS
No errors are defined. USAGE
The effect is intended to be similar to that of floating-point exceptions raised by arithmetic operations. Hence, enabled traps for float- ing-point exceptions raised by this function are taken. ATTRIBUTES
