FEHOLDEXCEPT(3P)	   POSIX Programmer's Manual	      FEHOLDEXCEPT(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.

       feholdexcept — save current floating-point environment

       #include <fenv.h>

       int feholdexcept(fenv_t *envp);

       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 feholdexcept() function shall save the current floating-point envi‐
       ronment in the object pointed to by envp, clear the floating-point sta‐
       tus  flags,  and	 then  install	a non-stop (continue on floating-point
       exceptions) mode, if available, for all floating-point exceptions.

       The feholdexcept() function shall return zero if and only  if  non-stop
       floating-point exception handling was successfully installed.

       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.



       The   feholdexcept()   function	 should	  be   effective   on  typical
       IEC 60559:1989 standard implementations which have the default non-stop
       mode  and at least one other mode for trap handling or aborting. If the
       implementation provides only the non-stop  mode,	 then  installing  the
       non-stop mode is trivial.
