<longdescription lang="en">
- OpenLibm is an effort to have a high quality standalone LIBM
- library. It is meant to be used standalone in applications and
- programming language implementations.
- OpenLibm also includes the AMOS library from Netlib, which is a
- portable package for Bessel Functions of a Complex Argument and
- Nonnegative Order. AMOS contains subroutines for computing Bessel
- functions and Airy functions.
- The OpenLIBM code derives from the FreeBSD msun implementation, which
- in turn derives from FDLIBM 5.3. As a result, it has a number of fixes
- and updates that have accumulated over the years in msun, and also
- optimized assembly versions of many functions.
+OpenLibm is an effort to have a high quality, portable, standalone C
+mathematical library (libm). It can be used standalone in applications
+and programming language implementations.
+The project was born out of a need to have a good libm for the Julia
+programming langage that worked consistently across compilers and
+operating systems, and in 32-bit and 64-bit environments.
