Hi Matt,
I see that you have started work on ccmath::signbit/copysign/etc. I also. Our basic problem is that std::bit_cast is only available with C++20. You are already trying to provide this for C++17 (BOOST_MATH_BIT_CAST). My questions:
- can you *guarantee* that BOOST_MATH_BIT_CAST works on/with all platforms/compilers ?
- if not: does it make sense to upgrade ccmath to C++20 so that std::bit_cast is available ?

Otherwise I can only oracle and provide code to the best of my knowledge - without guarantee that it works on/with all platforms/compilers :-(
