Summary 0001459: signgam.html differs from lgamma.html
Description The webpage for signgam
https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/signgam.html [^]
differs from the webpage for lgamma
https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/lgamma.html [^]
The lgamma.html, lgammaf.html, and lgammal.html pages are identical: this makes me assume that signgam.html should also be the same.
I'm not mathematically proficient enough to be a good judge of which one's better, but I have an instinctive feeling that lgamma.html is probably the "correct" version and signgam.html should be changed to match.

Also, neither formula image has alt text. (I don't know if it'd be easy to do for a math formula, though)

I wonder if there's an easier way to do things than to have multiple copies of these pages.
Desired Action Change signgam.html so it's identical with lgamma.html
Tags No tags attached.

In the PDF the signgam page is a pointer page to lgamma(). The HTML translator handles pointer pages by copying the referenced page, and in the original 2008 edition it appears that signgam.html was indeed a copy of lgamma.html:

https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799.2008edition/functions/signgam.html [^]

However, there have been subsequent changes made to lgamma.html that have not been duplicated in signgam.html.
