Hi Christopher!
Thanks for your reply.

You should try to look into the book that I linked

   - sample_use_boost_float.hpp - [1]
   - test_sample_use_boost_float.cpp - [2]
   - output1.txt - [3]
   - output2.txt - [4]

The header only file [1] contains the template class definition for the

   - Bessel functions (1st and 2nd kind)
   - Gamma function
   - sinc() function

In addition, zip file contains the tests [2] for multiprecision float
expressions of the aforementioned functions. The results have been tested
against values directly from Wolfram Alpha.

[3] is the console output on a successful run of tests. [4] has been also
provided for example output of unsuccessful run of tests.

Kindly have a look and comment.
