'Bug free floating point library'
I can't speak for all their libraries, but I did go line-by-line through
the floating point library used in AN624 (PIC14000 example) and found a
number of bugs -- creating numerical errors as large as thoses the
required Intel to recall the Pentium way back when. No they are not bug
free. In particular, look at all cases when a shift is done for addition
or normalizing, and when the shift is a multiple of 8 -- the carry bit
and resulting rounding is wrong.
