How can I use the _matherror function in my VC++ program?

I have looked in the on-line help and done some copy-paste but I can't make it working. According to a friend I probably have to do set some flag somewhere...

I would like to use the _matherror function to check handle asin() error.

When replying to this question ,if possible, please send me a clear answer.

Thank you very much in advance.

/* MATHERR.C illustrates writing an error routine for math

#include <math.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdio.h>

void main()
{
    /* Do several math operations that cause errors. The _matherr
     * routine handles _DOMAIN errors, but lets the system handle
     * other errors normally.

    printf( "log( -2.0 ) = %e\n", log( -2.0 ) );
    printf( "log10( -5.0 ) = %e\n", log10( -5.0 ) );
    printf( "log( 0.0 ) = %e\n", log( 0.0 ) );
}

/* Handle several math errors caused by passing a negative argument
 * to log or log10 (_DOMAIN errors). When this happens, _matherr
 * returns the natural or base-10 logarithm of the absolute value
 * of the argument and suppresses the usual error message.

int _matherr( struct _exception *except )

AlFa nice job on the cut and paste.  I think mtonko already tried this.
