Moin,

BigInt v1.40 is out. Some details below. In releated news, v1.30 of
Math::BigInt::BitVect is out (speed improvements and more tests). There is
also a new kid on the block, Math::BigInt::GMP v1.01. You can now write:

        use Math::BigInt lib => 'GMP';

or one of these or whatever you like:

        use Math::BigInt lib => 'GMP,Pari,BitVect';
        use Math::BigInt lib => 'Pari,GMP';

You can get all these from http://bloodgate.com/perl or CPAN, as usual.

A new version of Math::BigInt::Pari with some speed improvements and more
tests should appear soon, too.

Please have heaps of fun,

Tels

This lists only the changes for the current release (v1.40) over the last
version, since HISTORY is now quite big:

Fixes and enhancements:
  drop leading '+' for inf in bstr(), bsstr() to make $x->binf() eq inf work
  streamlined bcmp() for comparisations with zero
  bxor(-$x,-$y) was broken and not tested for
  bxor(), band(), bior() with negative arguments no longer passed to
  underlying lib (means it works with BitVect, Pari, GMP etc)

Math::String->from_number("215960156869840440586892398248"),"\n"'
