- raise floating-point exception
c99 [ flag... ] file... -lm [ library... ] #include <fenv.h> int feraiseexcept(int excepts);
The feraiseexcept() function attempts to raise the supported floating-point exceptions represented by the excepts argument. The order in which these floating-point exceptions are raised is unspecified.
If excepts is 0 or if all the specified exceptions were successfully raised, feraiseexcept() returns 0. Otherwise, it returns a non-zero value.
No errors are defined.
The effect is intended to be similar to that of floating-point exceptions raised by arithmetic operations. Hence, enabled traps for floating-point exceptions raised by this function are taken.
