NAME

Math::BigInt::Calc - Pure Perl module to support Math::BigInt

SYNOPSIS


    # to use it with Math::BigInt
    use Math::BigInt lib => Calc;

    # to use it with Math::BigFloat
    use Math::BigFloat lib => Calc;

    # to use it with Math::BigRat
    use Math::BigRat lib => Calc;

DESCRIPTION

Math::BigInt::Calc inherits from Math::BigInt::Lib.
In this library, the numbers are represented in base B = 10**N, where N is the largest possible value that does not cause overflow in the intermediate computations. The base B elements are stored in an array, with the least significant element stored in array element zero. There are no leading zero elements, except a single zero element when the number is zero.
For instance, if B = 10000, the number 1234567890 is represented internally as [7890, 3456, 12].
