How I can implement a Division By Zero exception handling into a DLL function using Borland C/C++ 5.01 both for 32 and 16 bit environment.

Many Thansk.

All I can suggest is using try / catch blocks in your code to handle any errors if they occur.
try
{
pWebInterface_i->writeBack( genBrowseScreen() );
            }
            catch(IKStackException * /*pException*/)
              {
                  //pException->addFunctionInfo("KService::addSession");
                    //comStackException(pException);
               }
               catch(IKAPIException * /*pException*/ )
               {
                  printf("error\n");
                    //comAPIException(pException);
               }
               catch(long int)
               {
                  printf("error\n");
                    //comMemException();
               }
            catch(...)
               {
                  DWORD lastError_i = GetLastError();
                  printf("error\n");
                  //KAPIException *pAPIException = new KAPIException( CLIENT_UNKNOWN_KERRORCODE_APIEXCEPTION );         
          }

Are you looking for some function like _set_new_handler but for divide by zero errors. I don't think one exists.

Sorry about the last posting , hit the wrong key combination ...

try
{
   divide by zero code;
}
catch(...)
{
   handle error
}

Did you use the (...) notation for the catch statment ?

Use the Toolhelp function: InterruptRegister(). The Tool Helper library supports INT_DIV0 (Divide-error exception). Please check with online help for more details.

try this:

--- start of example

// needs:
#include <float.h>
#include <signal.h>

typedef void (*SigHandler_T) (int);

// FPE Handler:
void cbSigFPE (int* piRegs)
{
    int iType = ( *((int*)&piRegs+1) );       // FPE_... defined in float.h
    // ...
    signal (SIGFPE, (SigHandler_T)cbSigFPE);  //  reinstall signal handler
}

// install FPE handler:
signal (SIGFPE, (SigHandler_T)cbSigFPE);

--- end of example

Don't use C++ runtime lib funks in signal handlers (semaphore deadlock might occur)

You may also mask out FPEs:
    UINT uExcpt = EM_INVALID|EM_DENORMAL|EM_ZERODIVIDE|EM_OVERFLOW|EM_UNDERFLOW|EM_INEXACT;
    _control87 (uExcpt, MCW_EM);
