Thanks Khalil. So now I have

> Hello linux-man and libc-help,
> I'm in the process of revising all of the man-pages describing the

> glibc math functions (for some background, look here:
> http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lib.glibc.alpha/13583/). Andries

> To run the script:
> a) Extract the two attached shell scripts to the same directory.
> b) Run the test:
> sh math_tests.sh > mt.log
> (This step will also produce around 100 (C and executable) files in /tmp.)
> c) clean up:
> rm /tmp/mt_*
> d) Send me the results (i.e., the mt.log above), CCing the list and
> mentioning what glibc version(s) you used, so that other people don't
> duplicate tests for the same glibc.
