(although please have a look at the licensing terms, even when
all our code is Boost, there is code inherited from Tango that
isn't), criticize it, and if you are really nice, fill issues
and make pull requests!
I find the licensing a bit confusing. For instance
Lists the licensing as: Tango 3 BSD Clause + Academic Free
But the original work Cephes seems to carry this ad-hoc license:
Some software in this archive may be from the book _Methods and
Programs for Mathematical Functions_ (Prentice-Hall or Simon &
International, 1989) or from the Cephes Mathematical Library, a
commercial product. In either event, it is copyrighted by the
What you see here may be used freely but it comes with no support
The two known misprints in the book are repaired here in the
source listings for the gamma function and the incomplete beta
Maybe it would be a good idea to sort out the code that is pure
Boost, or obtain a boost license where the authors are known,
because complicated licensing is a hindrance even if the "spirit"
is the same across the licenses.
