Math::BigInt::FastCalc

NAME

Math::BigInt::FastCalc - Math::BigInt::Calc with some XS for more speed

SYNOPSIS

  1. # to use it with Math::BigInt
  2. use Math::BigInt lib => 'FastCalc';
  3. # to use it with Math::BigFloat
  4. use Math::BigFloat lib => 'FastCalc';
  5. # to use it with Math::BigRat
  6. use Math::BigRat lib => 'FastCalc';

DESCRIPTION

Math::BigInt::FastCalc inherits from Math::BigInt::Calc.

Provides support for big integer calculations. Not intended to be used by other modules. Other modules which sport the same functions can also be used to support Math::BigInt, like Math::BigInt::GMP or Math::BigInt::Pari.

In order to allow for multiple big integer libraries, Math::BigInt was rewritten to use library modules for core math routines. Any module which follows the same API as this can be used instead by using the following:

  1. use Math::BigInt lib => 'libname';

'libname' is either the long name ('Math::BigInt::Pari'), or only the short version like 'Pari'. To use this library:

  1. use Math::BigInt lib => 'FastCalc';

STORAGE

Math::BigInt::FastCalc works exactly like Math::BigInt::Calc. Numbers are stored in decimal form chopped into parts.

METHODS

The following functions are now implemented in FastCalc.xs:

  1. _is_odd _is_even _is_one _is_zero
  2. _is_two _is_ten
  3. _zero _one _two _ten
  4. _acmp _len
  5. _inc _dec
  6. __strip_zeros _copy
