It sets the specified floating point rounding direction or the “current rounding direction” which is expected to be one of the floating point rounding macros.
It is used with rint(), nearbyint() and other rounding functions in C++.
Syntax: int fesetround( int round ); where round can be FE_TONEAREST, FE_DOWNWARD, FE_UPWARD, FE_TOWARDZERO Header File : cfenv Return : The fesetround() function returns 0 on success and the rounding direction is applied to the required number.
Errors and Exceptions : The function takes only FE_TONEAREST, FE_DOWNWARD, FE_UPWARD, FE_TOWARDZERO as arguments, otherwise it returns an error.
Application : fesetround() function can be used with rint(), nearbyint() and other rounding functions of the math header to apply the “current rounding direction”

It is used to obtain the value of the floating point rounding macro that corresponds to the current rounding direction. It is used with rint(), nearbyint() and other rounding functions in C++.
Syntax : int fegetround(); No parameter Header File : cfenv Return : The fegetround() function returns the floating point rounding macro describing the current rounding direction. Rounding Macros: 1.FE_DOWNWARD 2.FE_TONEAREST 3.FE_TOWARDZERO 4.FE_UPWARD
Errors and Exceptions :
- The function does not take any arguments, therefore returns an error if a parameter is passed
- If no rounding direction is specified using fesetround(), it returns the macro FE_TONEAREST
Application : fegetround() function can be used with rint(), nearbyint() and other rounding functions of the math header to get the “current rounding direction” using macros.
In this program we will be checking and printing the macro returned by the fegetround() function.
