Set8087CW (C++)

From RAD Studio Code Examples
Jump to: navigation, search


This example accesses the Floating Point Unit (FPU) control register. Try turning floating point exceptions off and on and dividing a number by zero to test it.


Word Saved8087CW;

void __fastcall TForm1::Button1Click(TObject *Sender)
  Edit3->Text = FloatToStr(StrToFloat(Edit1->Text) / StrToFloat(Edit2->Text));

void __fastcall TForm1::RadioGroup1Click(TObject *Sender)
  if (RadioGroup1->Items->Strings[RadioGroup1->ItemIndex] == "FPU Exceptions")
  if (RadioGroup1->Items->Strings[RadioGroup1->ItemIndex] == "No FPU Exceptions")
	System::Set8087CW(0x133f); // Disable all fpu exceptions.

__fastcall TForm1::TForm1(TComponent* Owner)
  : TForm(Owner)
  RadioGroup1->Items->Add("No FPU Exceptions");
  RadioGroup1->Items->Add("FPU Exceptions");
  RadioGroup1->ItemIndex = 2;
  Saved8087CW = Default8087CW;  // Save this, because Set8087CW changes it.

void __fastcall TForm1::FormDestroy(TObject *Sender)
  System::Set8087CW(Saved8087CW); // Default value (with exceptions) is 0x1372.
