Motorola Math Library for Power Macs

What?! Does something about this article seem odd, not as you remember, or too good to be true? Check the date it was published!

Motorola Math Library for Power Macs — Mark Granger has compiled a shared library for Power Macs running System 7.5 or later that accelerates Mac OS math functions. The library is built using the math library from the Motorola C/C++ Software Development Kit, and users claim it can provide as much as a 25 percent speed increase on floating point math operations, which could greatly benefit some applications. If you don’t use your Power Mac to do heavy calculations, this library probably won’t help you, but if you live for transcendental functions, it’s worth a look. [GD]
