NAME

fetestexcept - test floating-point exception flags

SYNOPSIS

#include <fenv.h>

int fetestexcept(int excepts);

DESCRIPTION

The fetestexcept() function shall determine which of a specified subset of the floating-point exception flags are currently set. The excepts argument specifies the floating-point status flags to be queried.

RETURN VALUE

The fetestexcept() function shall return the value of the bitwise-inclusive OR of the floating-point exception macros corresponding to the currently set floating-point exceptions included in excepts.

ERRORS

No errors are defined.

The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES

The following example calls function f() if an invalid exception is set, and then function g() if an overflow exception is set:

#include <fenv.h> /* ... */ { #pragma STDC FENV_ACCESS ON int set_excepts; feclearexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_OVERFLOW); // maybe raise exceptions set_excepts = fetestexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_OVERFLOW); if (set_excepts & FE_INVALID) f(); if (set_excepts & FE_OVERFLOW) g(); /* ... */ }

APPLICATION USAGE

None.

RATIONALE

None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS

None.
