    Re: Two-body fix caveat

    Boy, this sure generated a lot of responses.
    
    It seems to me that if the computer code simple calculates the answers
    for the two possibles fixes, using A+B and A-B in Eq. 7.5d, then let
    the navigator pick the closest fix, you will have covered all possible
    combinations of the locations of the GPs and ship.
    
    This makes an eloquent program with quite logical inputs and outputs.
    After all the are two fixes in the solution.
    
    Check this out and see what you think,
    
    John
