SF Comments

(1) Summary. A bit unclear as currently written. Suggested re-word as follows – “Calculates a value from the cumulative distribution function of the standard normal distribution minus 0.5. The standard normal distribution is a special case of the normal distribution, with a mean of 0 and a standard deviation of 1”.
(2) Returns. Can we change “standard normal cumulative distribution” to “cumulative distribution function of the standard normal distribution”. Also please state that the value lies in the range -0.5 to +0.5.
(3) Arguments. Suggest change “for which the value of the standard normal distribution is to be calculated” (which is not correct) to “to be used in the calculation”.
(4) Additional details. Suggested improvement – change “Normal distribution” to “normal distribution in general, and the standard normal distribution in particular,”.
(5) Additional details. Suggest we include an equation for this function (see referenced Wikipedia page and add “-0.5”).
(6) Examples. Neither example “calculates the normal distribution value”.
