Re: exp(5) = [$]e^5[$]

I cannot test it now, but it looks charming, doesn't it?
The article is old, so we were wondering with a couple of guys here if such methods haven't been implemented in modern compilers (e.g. --ffast-math flat in gcc). If no, the concept is worth soft-max bros' attention.
It's probably non-standard  and not sufficiently tested?

If [$]e^x = 1600[$][$]\%[$], what is [$]x[$]?

Exponentials are in the news these days.

This used to be a helluva good thread. I can't understand what's gone wrong with it.
