                I would like to request a review of the following three

        1) Special functions

        2) Quaternions

        3) Octonions

                There is a simple (and necessary) dependency between the
three: "Octonions" depends upon "Quaternions" which in turn depends
upon "Special functions".

                To the best of my knowledge, I have striven to abide by the
guidelines but one: limitation to 80 columns proved to be too
impractical, for all files except the tests.

                The libraries work correctly with Metrowerk's CodeWarrior
compiler, MacOs version, and so should also work with their Wintel
stuff. It is anticipated that it should work also with the Comeau
compiler. There might be some problems with gcc (locale deficiency, or
missing overloads for abs and sin & co), and I would welcome
suggestions as to how to get around them (I do not currently have
access to that compiler). I could not care less, however, about what
M$VC++ might have to say about these libraries...

                These libraries have independent (though cross-referenced)
documentation and are implemented thru three separate files (each a
single header). They are currently packaged as the file
"spefquatocto_sc1.tgz", which resides in the Vault.

        Best Regards
