I have several outstanding issues with BOOST_CHECK_CLOSE. Users keeps
confuse it with absolute comparison and error message is misleading.
What I plan is to switch to percentage based specification of the
tolerance. IOW BOOST_CHECK_CLOSE( a, b, p ) will check that (a-b)/a does not
exceed p percent. Error message I will change accordingly.
The only problem is that will not be backward compatible. Does anybody see
a solution to overcome this?
