Firstly, I gave you the wrong name of the file I downloaded - it was the 
, not the source code. Sorry about that.

I've downloaded it twice, and it's identical. I've also used two 
different un-zippers.

I'm also having trouble with C++. Here's a simple test case. The 
*compiler* appears to get into an infinite loop and never produces any 
output, not even stdout - or maybe it just takes an exceedingly long 
time to compile. It worked on gcc 4.1.2, and works on Cywin gcc 4.8.2. 
Can you reproduce this? NB for historical reasons, I think asinh is in 
global scope, not std, even with C++11.

#include <iostream>
#include <cmath>
//using std::asinh;
int main(void) {
std::cout << asinh(2) << '\n';
return 0;
