CTAN update: xint

Date: June 12, 2022 8:33:16 PM CEST
Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the xint package. Version number: 1.4m 2022-06-10 License type: lppl1.3c Summary description: Expandable operations on long numbers Announcement text:
- compatibility with miniltx (bugfix to resolve an infinite loop which appeared at 1.4l, but the situation was buggy even before). - documentation improvements, in particular each instance of a macro in the code source is linked to the place where it was first defined. Back and forth cross-references from the implementation to the user documentation are active in the file xint-all.pdf (not included, see README.md for the simple build instructions starting with xint.dtx). Some removals of long deprecated macros had been already acted when the miniltx compatibility bug surfaced so with hesitation I decided not to revert them. For details see CHANGES.html.

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Ina Dau --

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 .
