28.3 The floating-point environment [cfenv]

The contents and meaning of the header <cfenv> are the same as the C standard library header <fenv.h>.
[Note 1:
This document does not require an implementation to support the FENV_­ACCESS pragma; it is implementation-defined ([cpp.pragma]) whether the pragma is supported.
As a consequence, it is implementation-defined whether these functions can be used to test floating-point status flags, set floating-point control modes, or run under non-default mode settings.
If the pragma is used to enable control over the floating-point environment, this document does not specify the effect on floating-point evaluation in constant expressions.

28.3.2 Threads [cfenv.thread]

The floating-point environment has thread storage duration.
The initial state for a thread's floating-point environment is the state of the floating-point environment of the thread that constructs the corresponding thread object ([thread.thread.class]) or jthread object ([thread.jthread.class]) at the time it constructed the object.
[Note 1:
That is, the child thread gets the floating-point state of the parent thread at the time of the child's creation.
— end note]
A separate floating-point environment is maintained for each thread.
Each function accesses the environment corresponding to its calling thread.
