Stores the current state of the specified floating-point exception flags.


int fegetexceptflag(
   fexcept_t* pstatus,
   int excepts


A pointer to a fexcept_t object to contain the current values of the exception flags specified by excepts.

The floating-point exception flags to store in pstatus.

Return Value

On success, returns 0. Otherwise, returns a non-zero value.


The fegetexceptflag function stores the current state of the floating-point exception status flags specified by excepts in the fexcept_t object pointed to by pstatus. pstatus must point to a valid fexcept_t object, or subsequent behavior is undefined. The fegetexceptflag function supports these exception macros, defined in <fenv.h>:

Exception Macro Description
FE_DIVBYZERO A singularity or pole error occurred in an earlier floating-point operation; an infinity value was created.
FE_INEXACT The function was forced to round the stored result of an earlier floating-point operation.
FE_INVALID A domain error occurred in an earlier floating-point operation.
FE_OVERFLOW A range error occurred; an earlier floating-point operation result was too large to be represented.
FE_UNDERFLOW An earlier floating-point operation result was too small to be represented at full precision; a denormal value was created.
FE_ALLEXCEPT The bitwise OR of all supported floating-point exceptions.

The excepts argument may be zero, one of the supported floating-point exception macros, or the bitwise OR of two or more of the macros. The effect of any other argument value is undefined.

To use this function, you must turn off floating-point optimizations that could prevent access by using the #pragma fenv_access(on) directive prior to the call. For more information, see fenv_access.
