In single precision there doesn't seem to be an issue thankfully. I know the 34S trigonometric functions don't do the usual full reduction to the first octant before evaluating the functions. I brute force things with a longer series  it is smaller codewise. There is also the conversion to radians involved to disturb the results a bit. In summary: * not unexpected, * doesn't impact single precision, * will take space to fix. Is it worthwhile trying? I'll see if I can come up with something nice and simple.  Pauli
