In this thread on comp.lang.c, I mentioned this wiki. A reply message pointed out some problems with the algorithm (It would not work on big numbers, and numbers smaller than 1). After some testing, it seems to me that he is right, so it would be nice if someone with the necessary knowledge could fix it. Ahy1 07:24, 24 June 2006 (PDT)

To some extent this is a property of the algorithm; some initial guesses fail to converge. There might be bugs in the implementation too though. I'll check it out. Deco 09:30, 24 June 2006 (PDT)
