digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 19283] New: [std.mathspecial] documentation for normal


          Issue ID: 19283
           Summary: [std.mathspecial] documentation for normal
                    distribution doesn't list parameters
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All

            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial

The documentation for normalDistribution and normalDistributionInverse does not
state what mean and standard deviation are used. Presumably mean=0.0 and
stdev=1.0; this is consistent with the cumulative distribution equation listed
in the normalDistribution docs and the code for the z<1 case in
std.internal.math.errorfunction.normalDistributionImpl.  Still, it'd probably
be a good idea for someone familiar with std.internal.math.errorfunction to
double check that before updating the docs; there's some numerical stability
code (I think) in there that I was unable to follow.
