Portable, generic routines for many math functions in several computer
languages are readily available in netlib ( ).
You can also find unportable ones there, such as the one newlib uses. :-)

Assembly language math routines tailored for a specific processor are
harder to find.  I think it would be a worthy project to provide
optimized TMS320-specific codes.  Whether the newlib maintainers
should be interested in them is a different question.  Maybe they
would consent to giving a page of web pointers to such resources.
