Fixed some magic numbers.
The threshold for not being tiny was confusing and too small. Use the
usual 2**-12 threshold and simplify the algorithm slightly so that
this threshold works (now use the threshold for sinhf() instead of one
for 1+expm1()). This is just a small optimization.
The magic number 22 is log(DBL_EPSILON)/2 plus slop. This is bogus
for float precision. Use 9 (~log(FLT_EPSILON)/2 plus less slop than
for double precision).
The threshold for switching from returning exp(x)/2 to returning
exp(x/2)^2/2 was a little smaller than necessary. This was not quite
harmless since the exp(x/2)^2/2 case is inaccurate. Fixing it happens
to avoid accuracy problems for 2*6 of the 2*151 args that were handled
by the exp(x)/2 case. This leaves accuracy problems for about 2*19997
args near the overflow threshold (~89); the maximum error there is
There are also accuracy probles for args in +-[0.5*ln2, 9] -- 2*188885
args with errors of more than 1 ulp, with a maximum error of 1.384 ulps.
Fixed a syntax error and naming errors in pseudo-code in comments.
