But the question was how to get reliable math in IDL. Worse than spending time on programming is providing wrong data and procedures. If your experiment/group/department uses your code based on bad math in IDL then your are stuck and your colleages come up with: There several ready to use libaries (IMSL, NAG, ...) why dont you use them.
