That would be PJ Plauger's The Standard C Library, Prentice Hall, 1992 0-13-131509-9. Most of his math lib implementation is based on Cody and Waite, Software Manual for the Elementary Functions, Prentice Hall, 1980 (sorry, he doesn't give the ISBN). -- Matthew Saltzman Clemson University Math Sciences mjs AT clemson DOT edu http://www.math.clemson.edu/~mjs
