Version 1.21 got uploaded to:
I will place it tommorow at http://bloodgate.com/perl, too.
after another operation, sub() for numbers with at
least 6 trailing zeros failed (don't ask ;)
Math::BigFraction (please see readme!)
Math::BigFloat got some work for basics of mul/div/cmp, better _norm
anything should now work under v5.005_2 and up (except eval and
use Math::BigInt ':constant' but thats an old Perl bug)
I am now more and more unsure wether this projet is usefull at all, because
the original Math::BigInt are still in v5.7.1 despite the many replacement
projects that were started (some long ago), e.g. none of them was
good-enough or perhaps licence issues with the external libs? Or nobody
cared enough? Hm.
A small list of my findings about possible replacements is in the README.
And seeing that transparent Bigint support might be in Perl 6, which will
make M::BI obsolete...oups. But I am all for P6 and the transparent
support, so there ;-P
I wonder wether mine will end up as the others? Anybody with some insight
and an opionin is welcome.
Special Thanx must go to D.E.Knuth. The Art of programming becomes my
reading material for bedtime...
