decimal

Arbitrary-precision floating-point decimal library
README

Arbitrary-precision floating-point decimal type implemented in OCaml. Ported
from Python
decimal module.
It uses Zarith to do biginteger arithmetic.

Examples

$ opam install decimal # if trying out
# (* if trying out: *)
  #require "decimal";;
# (* for convenience *)
  module D = Decimal
  let i = D.of_int
  let s = D.of_string;;
# (* tell the REPL how to display decimals *)
  #install_printer D.pp;;
#
  D.(s "0.1" + s "0.2");;
- : D.t = 0.3
# (* default precision is 32 *)
  D.(i 1 / i 3);;
- : D.t = 0.33333333333333333333333333333333
# (* round to decimal places: *)
  D.(round ~n:2 (of_int 22 / of_int 7));;
- : D.t = 3.14

Dev

Build:

dune build

Try in REPL:

dune utop

Tests

The test runner source is in test/decimal_test.ml. It parses and runs the test
cases in test/data/. I am adding test case data files from the
Python snapshot
as I go.

Run current tests:

dune test

Note that, some of the tests don't make sense for the OCaml port and have thus
been deleted. If you ever need to update to new versions of the test files, you
can apply the changes as patches after re-dowloading the relevant *.decTest
files:

git show 07074859567e936b8d170aba5ef58889a4d9d467 | git apply
git show ae0196377fb7a99db7f198f2fb242e6a2fe4541e | git apply
