Excerpt from struct FloatingPointControl:

/** IEEE hardware exceptions.
 *  By default, all exceptions are masked (disabled).
enum : uint
    inexactException   = 0x20,
    underflowException = 0x10,
    overflowException  = 0x08,
    divByZeroException = 0x04,
    invalidException   = 0x01,
    /// Severe = The overflow, division by zero, and invalid exceptions.
    severeExceptions   = overflowException | divByZeroException
                         | invalidException,
    allExceptions      = severeExceptions | underflowException
                         | inexactException,

A little further up the file in struct IeeeFlags:

// The x87 FPU status register is 16 bits.
// The Pentium SSE2 status register is 32 bits.
uint flags;
version (X86_Any) {
    // Applies to both x87 status word (16 bits) and SSE2 status word(32 bits).
    enum : int {
        INEXACT_MASK   = 0x20,
        UNDERFLOW_MASK = 0x10,
        OVERFLOW_MASK  = 0x08,
        DIVBYZERO_MASK = 0x04,
        INVALID_MASK   = 0x01
    // Don't bother about denormals, they are not supported on most CPUs.
    //  DENORMAL_MASK = 0x02;
} else version (PPC) {

Both implement the same thing, but have (rather confusingly) different names
and one only implements for X86 whereas the other (at least tries) to implement
PPC and SPARC too.

IMO, as both structs take their values from <fpu_control.h> for GlibC
(<machine/ieeeflags.h> for FreeBSD?? <float.h> for Windows???), these enums
(and possibly the Get/Set/Clear CW functions too) should be consolidated into
one place elsewhere. For example, std.internal.math.fpbits, or possibly
