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

       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.

       fegetround, fesetround — get and set current rounding direction

       #include <fenv.h>

       int fegetround(void);
       int fesetround(int round);

       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 fegetround() function shall get the current rounding direction.

       The fesetround() function shall establish the rounding direction repre‐
       sented by its argument round.  If the argument  is  not	equal  to  the
       value  of  a  rounding  direction  macro, the rounding direction is not

       The fegetround() function shall return the value of the rounding direc‐
       tion  macro  representing  the current rounding direction or a negative
       value if there is no such  rounding  direction  macro  or  the  current
       rounding direction is not determinable.

       The  fesetround() function shall return a zero value if and only if the
       requested rounding direction was established.

       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.

       The following example saves, sets, and restores the rounding direction,
       reporting  an  error  and  aborting  if	setting the rounding direction

	   #include <fenv.h>
	   #include <assert.h>
	   void f(int round_dir)
	       #pragma STDC FENV_ACCESS ON
	       int save_round;
	       int setround_ok;
	       save_round = fegetround();
	       setround_ok = fesetround(round_dir);
	       assert(setround_ok == 0);
	       /* ... */
	       /* ... */
