Re: libm reentrancy


errno is not a problem, as it is transparently taken care of--see sys/errno.h.
errno is not really a global, but calls a function that returns a pointer to
the thread's individual errno within the reentrancy structure.

Oh yeah, forgot about errno. I guess the best way to avoid that is to make sure
the number you are taking the square root of isn't negative. -- Gregory

Hello,

Thanks for your reply Gregory.

The sqrt function for instance, may set the errno variable according
to the manual. Shouldn’t this function then have a reentrant version?
Or do I always need to use the _impure_ptr when using libm, to be thread safe?
