# Description

It is possible to use the package both with Plain (`\input xintexpr.sty`

) or with the LaTeX macro format (`\usepackage{xintexpr}`

).

The basic aim is provide *expandable* computations on (arbitrarily big) integers, fractions, and floating point numbers (at a user chosen precision). The four operations and the square-root extraction achieve the *correct rounding* for the given arbitrary precision. Exponential (natural and to the base ten), logarithm (also to the base 10), fractional powers, direct and inverse trigonometrical functions are available up to 62 digits of precision. The syntax supports dummy variables (to generate sequences of values) and nested structures. Support for user-declared functions and variables is implemented.

# Usage on the command line

One can use `xintexpr`

as an interactive calculator on the command line. See the xintsession package.

# Installation

`xint`

is included in TeXLive (hence MacTeX also) and in MikTeX. Thus, use the package manager to update your distribution.

Alternatives:

- download
`xint.tds.zip`

and install in a suitable TDS-compliant repertory via`unzip`

. "admin" privilges might be needed, as well as a file database rebuild (`texhash`

). For example, on macos x, installation into user home folder (no`sudo`

, and no`texhash`

as it is recommended to not have a ls-R file there)

unzip xint.tds.zip -d ~/Library/texmf

- all files can be extracted using
`etex xint.dtx`

, or`make`

if the`Makefile`

included in the CTAN upload is present; see the file`INSTALL`

, if present, else read the help in extracted file`Makefile.mk`

.

# Requirements

Since release `1.4`

, `xintexpr`

requires the `\expanded`

primitive. This is a functionality of all major TeX engines since TeXLive 2019.

## xint – Expandable operations on long numbers

The xint bundle main modules are:

- xinttools
- utilities of independent interest such as expandable and non-expandable loops,
- xintcore
- expandable macros implementing addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and powers for arbitrarily long integers,
- xint
- extension of xintcore,
- xintfrac
- extends the scope of xint to decimal numbers, to numbers using scientific notation and also to (exact) fractions,
- xintexpr
- 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 TeX, LaTeX, or (a priori) any other macro format built upon TeX.
