As I have no tested it with other versions of MSVC I have just supposed that this doesn't works neither on older versions. I didn't change the exixting macro to make evident the difference.

Hi again,

I have added the lcm.hpp file, the doc and some tests. I have changed the implementation of gcd and lcm to return always a positive number, even if a signed result could also be acceptable (I have choosen this option as the Boost.Math lib behaves this way).

I have no mean to generate the doc currently, so in addition to check the contents, could some of you try to integrate them and see the resulting documentation?

I want to add some more tests combining different signed and unsigned types, but I will do it next year.

BTW, have a happy end of year!
