```There is now only one out of order declaration in the repository code as
follows:

ode-initval2\test.c (2185 ...) out of order declarations:
------------------------------------  /* Test driver_apply_fixed_step */

gsl_odeiv2_driver_reset_hstart (d, 1e-3);
const unsigned long int nfsteps = 100000;
const double hfixed = 0.000025;
s = gsl_odeiv2_driver_apply_fixed_step (d, &t, hfixed, nfsteps, y);

if (s != GSL_SUCCESS)
------------------------------------
```
```
Please consider dropping this into a bug report at

Thanks Rhys,

I will do this.

```There are, however, quite a few test errors as follows:

...

I would be most grateful to know which of these are 'work in progress' and
which are unexpected and might hence be specific to a Visual Studio GSL
build.
```
```
How many of the errors you report persist when you compile in debug
mode (i.e. -O0)?  I am aware of test tolerances being problematic on
Intel compilers at -O2 or -O3.  I suspect Microsoft compilers will
similarly perturb the numerical results when optimization is enabled.
Anything that breaks at -O0 is certainly suspect.

======================

```
All the results i listed are without optimisation turned on - i.e in debug mode
```
```
Since a large number of the results are a very long way out, I was hoping that at least some might be 'work in progress' :-(
