This group includes various mathematical macros, constants and utility functions/functors.
Include the following at the top of any translation unit which requires this library:
Since it is a collection of macros and headers only, no linking is required if you are only utilising this functionality.
Usually there will always be macros for pi defined in <i>math.h</i>, namely M_PI, M_PI_2, etc... (sometimes they're unavailable, e.g. windoze!). For typesafe definitions, the ecl defines a couple of these similarly in the ecl::math namespace.
Various regularly used functions are also present - usually in the form of functors (useful for passing around should it ever be necessary). - ecl::EuclideanNorm - ecl::isApprox - ecl::isApproxOrLessThan
- /src/test/constants.cpp - /src/test/fuzzy.cpp - /src/test/norms.cpp
