my initial motivation is to make these functions accessible,
with just a few lines of additionnal code. that's so simple
with a linux box!

but now that a feature request is open - thanks Terry! -
it's interesting to have more accurate functions available.
so far, the most accurate code i found for the gamma
function is from the cephes library, used by the scipy package.

is there some other place to check?
do you know some nice code to see?
any link?
