NAME ^

Math::BigInt::GMP - backend library for Math::BigInt etc. based on GMP

SYNOPSIS ^

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

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

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

DESCRIPTION ^

Math::BigInt::GMP is a backend library for Math::BigInt, Math::BigFloat, Math::BigRat and related modules.

Math::BigInt::GMP provides support for big integer calculations by means of the GMP C library. See https://gmplib.org/ for more information about the GMP library.

Math::BigInt::GMP no longer uses Math::GMP, but provides its own XS layer to access the GMP C library. This cuts out another (Perl subroutine) layer and also reduces the memory footprint.

Math::BigInt::GMP inherits from Math::BigInt::Lib.

BUGS ^

Please report any bugs or feature requests to bug-math-bigint-gmp at rt.cpan.org, or through the web interface at https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Create.html?Queue=Math-BigInt-GMP (requires login). We will be notified, and then you'll automatically be notified of progress on your bug as I make changes.
