The fegetround() function shall get the current rounding direction.

The fesetround() function shall establish the rounding direction
represented by its argument round. If the
argument is not equal to the value of a rounding direction macro,
the rounding direction is not changed.

RETURN VALUE

The fegetround() function shall return the value of the rounding
direction macro representing the current rounding
direction or a negative value if there is no such rounding direction
macro or the current rounding direction is not
determinable.

The fesetround() function shall return a zero value if and only
if the requested rounding direction was established.

ERRORS

No errors are defined.

The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES

The following example saves, sets, and restores the rounding direction,
reporting an error and aborting if setting the rounding
direction fails:
