#961 new enhancement

Add an option for enabling floating point exceptions

Reported by: Ian Hinder Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: Cactus Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Cactus disables floating point exceptions, so that NaNs and Infs can be generated by numerical code. When debugging, it is sometimes very helpful to use these exceptions, as a debugger will tell you exactly which piece of code generates them.

I propose that Cactus should have a run-time parameter, defaulting to "no", which enables floating point exceptions.
