# New on CTAN: minifp

Date: January 11, 2013 12:05:21 PM CET

Dan Luecking submitted the
minifp
package to CTAN.
Summary description: Fixed-point real computations to 8 decimals.
License type: lppl
Announcement text:

This package provides basic arithmetic operations to 8 decimal places for plain TeX or LaTeX. Results are exact when they fit within the digit limits. Along with the basic package is an optional extension that adds computation of sin, cos, log, sqrt, exp, powers and angles. These are also exact when theoretically possible and are otherwise accurate to at least 7 decimal places. In addition there is provided a stack-based programing environment.

This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/generic/minifp . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/minifp (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
