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

       feupdateenv — update floating-point environment

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <fenv.h>

       int feupdateenv(const fenv_t *envp);

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 feupdateenv() function shall attempt to save the currently raised
       floating-point exceptions in its automatic storage, attempt to
       install the floating-point environment represented by the object
       pointed to by envp, and then attempt to raise the saved floating-
       point exceptions. The argument envp shall point to an object set by a
       call to feholdexcept() or fegetenv(), or equal a floating-point
       environment macro.

RETURN VALUE         top

       The feupdateenv() function shall return a zero value if and only if
       all the required actions were successfully carried out.

ERRORS         top

       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES         top

       The following example shows sample code to hide spurious underflow
       floating-point exceptions:

           #include <fenv.h>
           double f(double x)
           {
               #pragma STDC FENV_ACCESS ON
               double result;
               fenv_t save_env;
               feholdexcept(&save_env);
               // compute result
               if (/* test spurious underflow */)
               feclearexcept(FE_UNDERFLOW);
               feupdateenv(&save_env);
               return result;
           }

APPLICATION USAGE         top

       None.

RATIONALE         top

       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS         top

       None.
