The overflow exception occurs when a result has to be represented as a floating-point number, but has (much) larger absolute value than the largest (finite) floating-point number that is representable.
The underflow exception occurs when a result has to be represented as a floating-point number, but has smaller absolute value than the smallest positive normalized floating-point number (and would lose much accuracy when represented as a denormalized number).
The inexact exception occurs when the rounded result of an operation is not equal to the infinite precision result. It may occur whenever overflow or underflow occurs.
The invalid exception occurs when there is no well-defined result for an operation, as for 0/0 or infinity - infinity or sqrt(-1).
Each of the macros FE_DIVBYZERO, FE_INEXACT, FE_INVALID, FE_OVERFLOW, FE_UNDERFLOW is defined when the implementation supports handling of the corresponding exception, and if so then defines the corresponding bit(s), so that one can call exception handling functions, for example, using the integer argument FE_OVERFLOW|FE_UNDERFLOW. Other exceptions may be supported. The macro FE_ALL_EXCEPT is the bitwise OR of all bits corresponding to supported exceptions.
The feclearexcept() function clears the supported exceptions represented by the bits in its argument.
The fegetexceptflag() function stores a representation of the state of the exception flags represented by the argument excepts in the opaque object *flagp.
The feraiseexcept() function raises the supported exceptions represented by the bits in excepts.
The fesetexceptflag() function sets the complete status for the exceptions represented by excepts to the value *flagp. This value must have been obtained by an earlier call of fegetexceptflag() with a last argument that contained all bits in excepts.
The fetestexcept() function returns a word in which the bits are set that were set in the argument excepts and for which the corresponding exception is currently set.
Each of the macros FE_TONEAREST, FE_UPWARD, FE_DOWNWARD, and FE_TOWARDZERO is defined when the implementation supports getting and setting the corresponding rounding direction.
The fegetround() function returns the macro corresponding to the current rounding mode.
The fesetround() function sets the rounding mode as specified by its argument and returns zero when it was successful.
C99 and POSIX.1-2008 specify an identifier, FLT_ROUNDS, defined in <float.h>, which indicates the implementation-defined rounding behavior for floating-point addition. This identifier has one of the following values:
Other values represent machine-dependent, nonstandard rounding modes.
The value of FLT_ROUNDS should reflect the current rounding mode as set by fesetround() (but see BUGS).
The fegetenv() function saves the current floating-point environment in the object *envp.
The feholdexcept() function does the same, then clears all exception flags, and sets a nonstop (continue on exceptions) mode, if available. It returns zero when successful.
The fesetenv() function restores the floating-point environment from the object *envp. This object must be known to be valid, for example, the result of a call to fegetenv() or feholdexcept() or equal to FE_DFL_ENV. This call does not raise exceptions.
The feupdateenv() function installs the floating-point environment represented by the object *envp, except that currently raised exceptions are not cleared. After calling this function, the raised exceptions will be a bitwise OR of those previously set with those in *envp. As before, the object *envp must be known to be valid.

#include <fenv.h> int feenableexcept(int excepts);
int fedisableexcept(int excepts);
The feenableexcept() and fedisableexcept() functions enable (disable) traps for each of the exceptions represented by excepts and return the previous set of enabled exceptions when successful, and -1 otherwise. The fegetexcept() function returns the set of all currently enabled exceptions.
