fdlibm

A new version of the C maths library, libm, by Dr. K-C Ng. It is the basis for the bundled /usr/lib/libm.so in Solaris 2.3 for SPARC and for future Solaris 2 releases for x86 and PowerPC. It provides the standard functions necessary to pass the usual test suites. This new libm can be configured to handle exceptions in accordance with various language standards or in the spirit of IEEE 754. The C source code should be portable to any IEEE 754 system.
