CTAN update: xint

Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the
xint
package.
Version number: 1.2m 2017-07-31
License type: lppl1.3c
Summary description: Expandable operations on long numbers
Announcement text:
All macros of xintbinhex.sty have been rewritten using techniques from the 1.2 release (they had remained unmodified since 1.08 of 2013/06/07.) The new macros are faster but limited to a few thousand digits. The 1.08 routines could handle tens of thousands of digits, but not in a reasonable time. A few more modest improvements; and bugfix of the bookmarks in the PDF documentation.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/generic/xint More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/xint
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Manfred Lotz We are supported by the TeX user groups. Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .

xint – Expandable operations on long numbers
The bundle provides nine packages:
- xintcore, which provides expandable TeX 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 TeX or LaTeX.
