> The current FreeBSD documentation for fedisableexcept says: All exceptions are masked by default.

The fedisableexcept manual page says that since this manual page was added to FreeBSD 6.0 which was released in 2005.

Python started to tune FPU control on FreeBSD in 2002.

Should I understand that fedisableexcept(FE_OVERFLOW) is useless since FreeBSD 6?

I'm also surprised that I never saw any complain about that on other BSD: OpenBSD, NetBSD, macOS, etc. It seems like the fedisableexcept(FE_OVERFLOW) call is useless since a long time.
