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 bun­dle pro­vides nine pack­ages:

  • xint­core, which pro­vides ex­pand­able macros that im­ple­ment the ba­sic arith­metic op­er­a­tions of ad­di­tion, sub­trac­tion, mul­ti­pli­ca­tion and di­vi­sion, as ap­plied to ar­bi­trar­ily long num­bers rep­re­sented as chains of dig­its with an op­tional mi­nus sign;
  • xint, which ex­tends xint­core with more big in­te­ger op­er­a­tions;
  • xint­tools, which pro­vides util­i­ties of in­de­pen­dent in­ter­est such as ex­pand­able and non-ex­pand­able loops;
  • xint­frac, which com­putes frac­tions us­ing xint;
  • xin­t­expr, which ex­tends xint­frac with an ex­pand­able parser of comma sep­a­rated ex­pres­sions in­volv­ing in­te­gers, frac­tions, boolean, and al­ge­braic op­er­a­tors, and de­clared as well as dummy vari­ables;
  • xint­bin­hex pro­vides con­ver­sions to and from bi­nary and hex­adec­i­mal bases;
  • xintseries, which pro­vides ba­sic func­tion­al­ity for com­put­ing par­tial sums us­ing xint;
  • xint­gcd, which pro­vides im­ple­men­ta­tions of the Eu­clidean al­go­rithm, and of its type­set­ting;
  • xintcfrac, which deals with the com­pu­ta­tion of con­tin­ued frac­tions.

All of the pack­ages’ com­pu­ta­tions are done in a way that they can op­er­ate in an ex­pand­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

The pack­ages may be used ei­ther with Plain or .
