Version 1.3 of inline-math.tar.gz has been uploaded to sunsite:/pub/Linux/libs.
Inline-math is a gcc macro package that inlines the floating-point math
routines found in libm. It can typically improve execution speed by 10%.
These inline routines avoid using the flawed algorithms for sinh, tanh,
asinh, and atanh found in libm (which produce incorrect results for small
The new package uses inlined functions instead of macros, behaves properly
under the gcc flag -ansi, and fixes bugs in the Version 1.0 implementation
of tan(x) and sgn(x). A more efficient algorithm for the function log1p()
is now being used.
