FERAISEEXCEPT(3P)         POSIX Programmer's Manual        FERAISEEXCEPT(3P)

PROLOG         top

       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.

NAME         top

       feraiseexcept — raise floating-point exception

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <fenv.h>

       int feraiseexcept(int excepts);

DESCRIPTION         top

       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.

RETURN VALUE         top

       If the argument is zero or if all the specified exceptions were
       successfully raised, feraiseexcept() shall return zero. Otherwise, it
       shall return a non-zero value.

ERRORS         top

       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES         top

       None.

APPLICATION USAGE         top

       The effect is intended to be similar to that of floating-point
       exceptions raised by arithmetic operations. Hence, enabled traps for
       floating-point exceptions raised by this function are taken.

RATIONALE         top

       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.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS         top

       None.
