Subject: permit FE_DIVBYZERO when errno says EDOM


Regarding 7.12.1 para 2,

which says that if both errno and fp exceptions are used, and if a domain error occurs, then errno gets EDOM and the fp exception is FP_INVALID:
The purpose of this document is to initiate a formal potential defect report to request that FE_DIVBYZERO can also be acceptable here.
My previous emails contained a substantive typo which may have created unnecessary confusions.

Suggested Technical Corrigendum

Committee Discussion (for history only)

Fall 2006

At the fall meeting it was suggested that there need not be a change to 7.12.1. No consensus was reached, leave in open status.

Spring 2007

In London the consensus was that no change is required.

Proposed Committee Response

The Standard seems clear, no change is needed.
