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. |
