fp Plugin 7.4

A REALbasic plugin that adds two new data types
Using his own fp multi-precision engine, fp Plugin for REALbasic adds two new data types. They are:
· BigInteger
· BigFloat

Except for available memory, there is no limitation on the size of a BigInteger. So you can multiply a 100 digit integer by another 100 digit integer giving the exact 200 digit integer.

BigFloat is a multi--precision floating point number. You can set both the internal precision and the decimal output precision for BigFloat, with no limitation except for available memory.

It might take awhile, but you can now calculate pi in a REALbasic program to a million decimal places, or more. The power of 10 for BigFloat can range from about -600,000,000 to +600,000,000 as compared to -308 to +308 for a Double.

fp Plugin lets you to construct programs that can handle the two new data types much like integers and doubles are handled.

To a large extent the new data types can be freely used with the +, -, *, and / operators, and can be used in comparisons. And most of REALbasic's functions have been overloaded to take the new data types, where it makes sense to do so.
