This 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.
The functionality described on this reference page is aligned with
the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the requirements described
here and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This volume of
POSIX.1‐2008 defers to the ISO C standard.
The feraiseexcept() function shall attempt to raise the supported
floating-point exceptions represented by the argument excepts. The
order in which these floating-point exceptions are raised is
unspecified. Whether the feraiseexcept() function additionally raises
the inexact floating-point exception whenever it raises the overflow
or underflow floating-point exception is implementation-defined.
Raising overflow or underflow is allowed to also raise inexact
because on some architectures the only practical way to raise an
exception is to execute an instruction that has the exception as a
side-effect. The function is not restricted to accept only valid
coincident expressions for atomic operations, so the function can be
used to raise exceptions accrued over several operations.
