To assess the accuracy of the elementary functions provided by the mathcw library, it is best to let the ELEFUNT numbers speak for themselves. Table 24.1 on the next page through Table 24.23 on page 822 show typical results obtained at this author’s site and the Hewlett–Packard Test Drive Laboratory. The tables are prepared with the help of a small awk program that filters and reformats the output of make check to avoid errors from manual transcription.
