Defined in float.h, the _clearfp() function is provided for compatibility with Microsoft products.

_clearfp() clears all five exception sticky flags and returns their previous values. You can use the _controlfp() argument macros, for example _EM_INVALID and _EM_ZERODIVIDE, to test bits of the returned result.

The function prototype for _clearfp() is:

unsigned _clearfp(void);


This function requires you to select a floating-point model that supports exceptions. For example, --fpmode=ieee_full or --fpmode=ieee_fixed.
