6 CONTENTS
7 This subdirectory contains a rational approximation paper and
8 supporting demonstration software that was submitted to the
9 journal "ACM Transactions On Mathematical Software" around
10 October of 2000. The authors were David T. Ashley, Joseph P.
11 DeVoe, Karl Perttunen, Cory Pratt, and Anatoly Zhigljavsky.

13 After spending one year in review, the reviews were second-rate
14 One of the two reviews was reasonable, but it was clear in the
15 second review that the reviewer did not understand the paper.
16 One [silly] comment was to ask why the system proposed was better
17 than mediant rounding. That was a purely idiotic comment, because
18 mediant rounding is a system of representation, but the topic
19 of the paper was simply how to choose a rational number.
20
21 After much human drama, because of the long review delay, it
22 was decided to instead publish a shorter version in "Embedded
23 Systems Programming" magazine.
24
25 There are two subdirectories, "paper" (for the paper) and
26 "c_imp" (for the demonstration software).

28 Please see the "_license.txt" file for licensing information.

30 MNEMONIC
31 "acm" is short for "Association For Computing Machinery", and
32 represents part of the title of the journal to which this paper
33 was submitted, and "0010" is a date code for October, 2000.
