       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.

       feraiseexcept — raise floating-point exception

       #include <fenv.h>

       int feraiseexcept(int excepts);

       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 unspeci‐
       fied. Whether the  feraiseexcept()  function  additionally  raises  the
       inexact	floating-point	exception  whenever  it raises the overflow or
       underflow floating-point exception is implementation-defined.

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

       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.


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

       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.
