What is the status of the interval arithmetic library?
By the way, the http://www.rhein-main.de/people/jmaurer/interval.tar.gz link is broken at http://www.mscs.mu.edu/~georgec/IFAQ/maurer1.html
Further complicating this broken link is that WWW-page's clause "its final place will be at www.boost.org" but the only place that I can find the interval library in Boost is an upload dated 23 April 2001 in the Yahoo files section.
The interval library should do whatever remaining work is necessary to become officially accepted into Boost and/or that Interval FAQ WWW-site should be updated explaining in detail how to obtain the Jens Maurer's interval library, explaining that the library is in the Yahoo files section.
Based on the following statement from later on in that same WWW-page referring to Boost, I was surprised that the interval library was not officially accepted into Boost already.
"The group of C++ experts at www.boost.org (many of whom are on the C++ stardard committee) has reviewed this interval class to ensure that the interface would be appropriate for standardization."
[FYI, "stardard" is an inadvertent typo there which could be fixed too while Jens Maurer et. al. are arranging for the broken link to be fixed.]
