Description

These functions currently have an arbitrary domain limit of ±1.E18. The FPU hardware supports accurate calculation up
±9.223E18 (2^63). The proposal is to remove this arbitrary software limit which:
1 - Extends the useful range of these functions
2 - Shortens, and speeds up, the resulting code
3 - Makes the code easier to understand because of the removal of arbitrary limits and a distracting comment.
In addition it is proposed to add a "SinCos" procedure.
Proposed by Robert.
