In the past, I've done a lot of performance tests with an old program for computing Lanczos coefficients. I just dusted it off and ported it. The preliminary first look is OK. Any type can plug into it with a typedef, pi, sqrt, pown, sin, exp, log. I can provide you with the source after further verification if you like. The test is timed and it takes about 1.5 seconds for 300 decimal digits on my machine. It's memory intensive since the matrices are dynamic in RAM and not put to disk. So it won't go up over about 2000 decimal digits. You can play around with "g" and "n" like we once talked about. Sincerely, Chris.
