Flash, thanks for cleaning up the portable implementation page I tried to start. In case you're wondering, files that have names starting with "X" are supposed to contain hidden functions, data types, etc. that the other functions need to work. If you could create a category for <assert.h> and put that file and xassert.c in it, that would be great. -- Gregory Pietsch 22:43, 2 February 2006 (GMT)
Not a problem Gregory. We do have some help on how to do things on the Editing help link. Or go in to edit on the code pages you created, and the category pages, and you will see that all I've done is create a link to the category at the bottom of the page. --Flash Gordon 22:58, 2 February 2006 (GMT)
Ooh, didn't realize I had to go the other direction and link up instead of down. Hopefully, I'll get better at this in the future. BTW, how does <limits.h> look? -- Gregory Pietsch 23:24, 2 February 2006 (GMT)
Yes, the category links are a little counter-intuitive. Your limits.h looks interesting, but it will take a bit of work for me to follow through the bit manipulations and see how it all works. --Flash Gordon 08:04, 3 February 2006 (GMT)
I noticed that in an edit comment you said something about clearing the page from the cache - in case you hadn't discovered it by now, it's also possible to do this through the url with

In a fit of pique, I managed a third of the math.h functionality (70 files! Whoo!). Since my brain is fried thanks to all of this, could you or somebody else check my math on type float? I don't think the seminumerical stuff is very portable, but there has to be a way of doing certain things.

I think posting the code, or inks to it, to comp.lang.c and asking for advice there would be better. Obviously making it clear you are the implementor here so you don't get complained at for invading the implementation name space. These days my maths is probably far too rusty.
