This is release 0.1 of Big_numbers.

1 - What is Big_numbers ?

Big_numbers is a library written in (Small)Eiffel which provides arbitary precision numbers.

2 - Platform:

This library was developped for SmallEiffel-0.80 or above. It is written 99% in Eiffel and needs only 7 little ANSI C macros (csrc/big_numbers.h).

NOTE: The library does not compile correctly with the '-boost' option. It seems to be a bug of SmallEiffel.

3 - Using Big_numbers library:

To use this library just put the distribution directory path in your application 'loadpath.se' and use the '-include' option to include 'csrc/big_numbers.h' in the generated C code.

4 - Contents:

The distribution consists of the following files:

	Readme.txt		This message

	big_number.e		Multi-precision numbers low-level functions
