Following my previous rant about the sorry state of syntax highlighting in Visual Studio 2010, I have decided to make my small add-in public.
Long story short, the add-in fixes the following issues in the code editor:
Update: I have been informed that VsLol works properly on Visual Studio 2012 and fixes the same issues; I have therefore uploaded version 22.214.171.124 and activated the VS2012 flags.
A new version of our high precision polynomial approximation solver, LolRemez 0.2, is available.
The changes, taking into account all the feedback users provided, are as follows:
- significant performance and accuracy improvements thanks to various bugfixes and a better extrema finder for the error function.
- user can now define accuracy of the final result.
- exp, sin, cos and tan are now about 20% faster.
- multiplying a real number by an integer power of two is now a virtually free operation.
- fixed a rounding bug in the real number printing routine.
In my previous article about the Remez exchange algorithm I said I was working on a Remez exchange toolkit for everyone to play with. Though it’s far from being full-featured, I already use it and I believe it is already extremely useful. So I decided to release LolRemez 0.1 to the masses.
