Math-BigInt OO design (again)Message ID:

CAEvoY42gHE5d_hEGQKuvSLPM5TvtoMC0CvyBrfcwKOGkxopdrA@mail.gmail.comLast year I posted a question here about me wanting a virtual parent class for Math::Big(Int|BigFloat|Rat) modules. I suggested the name Math::BigNum, and I got thumbs up, but now that I am about to implement this, I realize that this package/namespace has been taken by TRIZEN for the Math-BigNum distribution. I have thought about Math::BigReal as an alternative, but since the Math::Big(Int|Float|Rat) modules are in the Perl distribution, I would like your input. Math::BigReal is actually more precise than Math::BigNum, since I am only dealing with real numbers. What do you think? Any better alternatives? Regards Peter / PJACKLAM (Current maintainer for the Math-BigInt-related distributions.)Thread Next
