Hello. Thank you for the new version.

0001: applies cleanly. regress passed.
      this mainly refactoring geo_ops.c and replacing pg_hypot with hypot(3).
0002: applies cleanly. regress passed.
      this just replaces float-ops macros into inline functions.
0003: applies cleanly. regress passed.
      replaces double with float8 and bare arithmetic with defined functions.
0004: applies cleanly. regress passsed.
      fix broken line-related functions.
      I have some comments on this (later).

Agreed. I found that psprintf does that with initial length of

By the way, I found that MAXDOUBLEWIDTH has two inconsistent
definitions in formatting.c(500) and float.c(128). The definition
in new float.h is according to float.c and it seems better to be
untouched and it would be another issue.

It seems bettern than expected.  I confirmed that
pg_hypot(DBL_MAX, DBL_MAX) returned a value that is equivalent to
HUGE_VAL * HUGE_VAL on glibc, but I'm not sure the behavior on
other platforms is the same.

For other potential reviewers:

I found the origin of the function here.


And the reason for pg_hypot is seen here.


I think the replacement is now acceptable according to the discussion.

And this should be the last comment of mine on the patch set.

In 0004, line_distance and line_interpt_internal seem
correct. Seemingly horizontal/vertical checks are redundant but
it is because unclearly defined EPSLON bahavior. lseg_perp seems

close_pl got a bug fix not only refactoring. I think it is
recommended to separate bugs and improvements, but I'm fine with
the current patch.

You added sanity check "A==0 && B==0" (in Ax + By + C) in
line_recv. I'm not sure the necessity of the check since it has
been checked in line_in but anyway the comparisons seem to be
typo(or thinko) of FPzero.

dist_pl is changed to take the smaller distance of both ends of
the segment. It seems absorbing error, so it might be better
taking the mean of the two distances. If you have a firm reason
for the change, it is better to be written there, or it might be
better left alone.
