-The bigfloat module is a Python wrapper for the MPFR library for arbitrary
-precision floating-point reliable arithmetic.
-The MPFR library is a well-known portable C library for arbitrary-precision
-arithmetic on floating-point numbers. It provides precise control over
-precisions and rounding modes and gives correctly-rounded reproducible
-platform-independent results.
-The bigfloat module aims to provide a convenient and friendly Python
-interface to the operations and functions provided by the MPFR library. The
-main class, BigFloat, gives an immutable multiple-precision floating-point
-type that can be freely mixed with Python integers and floats. The Context
-class, when used in conjunction with Pythons with statement, gives a simple
-way of controlling precisions and rounding modes. Additional module-level
-functions provide various standard mathematical operations. There is full
-support for IEEE 754 signed zeros, nans, infinities and subnormals.
