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

PROLOG
       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
       fegetenv, fesetenv - get and set current floating-point environment

SYNOPSIS
       #include <fenv.h>

       int fegetenv(fenv_t *envp);
       int fesetenv(const fenv_t *envp);

DESCRIPTION
       The fegetenv() function shall attempt to store  the  current  floating-
       point environment in the object pointed to by envp.

       The  fesetenv()	function shall attempt to establish the floating-point
       environment represented by the object pointed to by envp. The  argument
       envp  shall point to an object set by a call to fegetenv() or feholdex‚Äź
       cept(), or equal a floating-point  environment  macro.  The  fesetenv()
       function	 does  not  raise floating-point exceptions, but only installs
       the state of the floating-point status flags  represented  through  its
       argument.

RETURN VALUE
       If  the representation was successfully stored, fegetenv() shall return
       zero. Otherwise, it shall return a non-zero value.  If the  environment
       was  successfully established, fesetenv() shall return zero. Otherwise,
       it shall return a non-zero value.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.
