feholdexcept: save current floating-point environment
PROLOGThis manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.
feholdexcept - save current floating-point environment
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.
No errors are defined.
The feholdexcept() function should be effective on typical IEC 60559:1989 standard implementations which have the default non-stop mode and at least one other mode for trap handling or aborting. If the implementation provides only the non-stop mode, then installing the non-stop mode is trivial.
