Arbitrary precision correctly-rounded floating point arithmetic, via MPFR.

Project description

The bigfloat package is a Python package providing arbitrary-precision
correctly-rounded floating-point arithmetic. It is implemented as a
wrapper around the MPFR library (http://www.mpfr.org).

Features:

- correct rounding on all operations; precisely defined semantics
compatible with the IEEE 754-2008 standard.

- the BigFloat type interacts well with Python integers and floats.

- full support for emulating IEEE 754 arithmetic in any of the IEEE binary
interchange formats described in IEEE 754-2008. Infinities, NaNs,
signed zeros, and subnormals are all supported.

- easy control of rounding modes and precisions, via Python's 'with'
statement.
