the idiomatic rounding of x is
n = x + toint - toint;
where toint is either 1/EPSILON (x is non-negative) or 1.5/EPSILON
(x may be negative and nearest rounding mode is assumed) and EPSILON is
according to the evaluation precision (the type of toint is not very
important, because single precision float can represent the 1/EPSILON of
in case of FLT_EVAL_METHOD!=0 this avoids a useless store to double or
float precision, and the long double code became cleaner with
1/LDBL_EPSILON instead of ifdefs for toint.
__rem_pio2f and __rem_pio2 functions slightly changed semantics:
on i386 a double-rounding is avoided so close to half-way cases may
get evaluated differently eg. as sin(pi/4-eps) instead of cos(pi/4+eps)
* faster, smaller, cleaner implementation than the bit hacks of fdlibm
* use arithmetics like y=(double)(x+0x1p52)-0x1p52, which is an integer
neighbor of x in all rounding modes (0<=x<0x1p52) and only use bithacks
when that's faster and smaller (for float it usually is)
* the code assumes standard excess precision handling for casts
* long double code supports both ld80 and ld128
* nearbyint is not changed (it is a wrapper around rint)
zero, one, two, half are replaced by const literals
The policy was to use the f suffix for float consts (1.0f),
but don't use suffix for long double consts (these consts
can be exactly represented as double).
thanks to the hard work of Szabolcs Nagy (nsz), identifying the best
(from correctness and license standpoint) implementations from freebsd
and openbsd and cleaning them up! musl should now fully support c99
float and long double math functions, and has near-complete complex
math support. tgmath should also work (fully on gcc-compatible
compilers, and mostly on any c99 compiler).
based largely on commit 0376d44a890fea261506f1fc63833e7a686dca19 from
nsz's libm git repo, with some additions (dummy versions of a few
missing long double complex functions, etc.) by me.
various cleanups still need to be made, including re-adding (if
they're correct) some asm functions that were dropped.
