Jean-François Burnol sub­mit­ted an up­date to the xint pack­age. Ver­sion: 1.2j 2016-12-22 Li­cense: lp­pl1.3 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Ex­pand­able op­er­a­tions on long num­bers An­nounce­ment text:
Im­prove­ments and new fea­tures - xint­tools and xin­t­expr: 1. slightly im­proves the speed of \xin­tTrim. 2. speed gains for the han­dlers of comma sep­a­rated lists im­ple­ment­ing Python-like slic­ing and item ex­trac­tion. Rel­e­vant non (user) doc­u­mented macros bet­ter doc­u­mented in sourcex­int.pdf. - sig­nif­i­cant doc­u­men­ta­tions tweaks (in­clu­sive of sup­press­ing things!), and among them two beau­ti­ful hy­per­linked ta­bles with both hor­i­zon­tal and ver­ti­cal rules which bring the doc­u­men­ta­tion of the xin­t­expr syn­tax to a kind of awe-in­spir­ing per­fec­tion... ex­cept that im­ple­men­ta­tion of some math func­tions is still lack­ing. Bug fixes - fix two 1.2i re­gres­sions caused by un­de­fined macros (\xin­tNthElt in cer­tain branches and [list][N] item ex­trac­tion in cer­tain cases.) The test files ex­isted but were not ex­e­cuted prior to re­lease. Au­toma­tion in progress.

xint – Ex­pand­able op­er­a­tions on long num­bers

The xint bun­dle main mod­ules are:

util­i­ties of in­de­pen­dent in­ter­est such as ex­pand­able and non-ex­pand­able loops,
ex­pand­able macros im­ple­ment­ing ad­di­tion, sub­trac­tion, mul­ti­pli­ca­tion, di­vi­sion, and pow­ers for ar­bi­trar­ily long in­te­gers,
ex­ten­sion of xint­core,
ex­tends the scope of xint to dec­i­mal num­bers, to num­bers us­ing sci­en­tific no­ta­tion and also to (ex­act) frac­tions,
pro­vides ex­pand­able parsers of nu­meric ex­pres­sions us­ing the stan­dard in­fix no­ta­tions, paren­the­ses, built-in func­tions, user de­fin­able func­tions and vari­ables (and more ...) which do ei­ther ex­act eval­u­a­tions (also with frac­tions) or float­ing point eval­u­a­tions un­der a user cho­sen pre­ci­sion.

Fur­ther mod­ules of the bun­dle are: xin­tk­er­nel (sup­port macros for all the bun­dle con­stituents), xint­bin­hex (con­ver­sion to and from hex­adec­i­mal and bi­nary bases), xint­gcd (pro­vides gcd() and lcm() func­tions to xin­t­expr), xintseries (eval­u­ates nu­mer­i­cally par­tial sums of se­ries and power se­ries with frac­tional co­ef­fi­cients), and xintcfrac (ded­i­cated to the com­pu­ta­tion and dis­play of con­tin­ued frac­tions).

All com­pu­ta­tions are com­pat­i­ble with ex­pan­sion-only con­text.

The pack­ages may be used with Plain , , or (a pri­ori) any other macro for­mat built upon .
