A C++ program may install different handler functions during execution, by supplying a pointer to a function defined in the program or the library as an argument to (respectively):

A C++ program can get a pointer to the current handler function by calling the following functions:

Calling the set_­* and get_­* functions shall not incur a data race. A call to any of the set_­* functions shall synchronize with subsequent calls to the same set_­* function and to the corresponding get_­* function.
