Excellent. So, to summarize :
GCC 4.0.X compiles and runs correctly
MSVC 8.0 compiles and runs correctly
MSVC 7.1 compiles and runs - correctness not checked
MWCW 9.2 compiles - problems with partial ordering (fixed),
problems with isfinite, etc... (not fixed yet)

Thanks for coming up with a fix. I was just avoiding having
to put them in a .cpp file - your solution looks much more appealing.
Let me test it out...
