Doc bug in boost / math / incomplete beta

Reported by: pete@… Owned by: johnmaddock
Milestone: Boost 1.39.0 Component: math
Version: Boost 1.38.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:

Description

There is a minor bug in the synoposis of the incomplete beta function documentation. Specifically the #include is for the gamma function. See e.g.

http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_38_0/libs/math/doc/sf_and_dist/html/math_toolkit/special/sf_beta/ibeta_function.html

If you do use this include blindly the result error is a link error (presumably the gamma function sees a forward declaration of the beta function somewhere), which is relatively confusing when one is used to Boost.Math being mostly a header-only library.
