Module BatNum

module BatNum: sig .. end

Operation on arbitrary-precision numbers.

Numbers (type BatNum.num) are arbitrary-precision rational numbers, plus the special elements 1/0 (infinity) and 0/0 (undefined).


type num = Num.num = 
| Int of int
| Big_int of Big_int.big_int
| Ratio of Ratio.ratio

The type of numbers.

Usual operations
val one : num
val neg : num -> num
val abs : num -> num
val add : num -> num -> num
val sub : num -> num -> num
val mul : num -> num -> num
val div : num -> num -> num
val modulo : num -> num -> num

val of_int : int -> num
val to_int : num -> int
val of_float : float -> num
val to_float : num -> float
val of_string : string -> num
val to_string : num -> string

Convert a number to a string, using fractional notation. Two formats are recognized: simple integer literals and a pair of integer literals separated by a '/', to indicate a rational number.

val of_float_string : string -> num

Convert a simple floating point literal to a num. Plain integer literals are also accepted; numbers written with a trailing exponent are not currently accepted.

Additional operations

Euclidian divisiom

val square : num -> num
val succ : num -> num
val pred : num -> num
val is_integer : num -> bool

is_integer x returns true if x represents an integer value, false otherwise

val round : num -> num
val floor : num -> num
val ceil : num -> num
val approx : num -> num

approx n return the integer closest to n

val sign : num -> int

Return -1, 0 or 1 according to the sign of the argument.

Coercions with strings
val approx_num_fix : int -> num -> string

See Num.approx_num_exp.

val approx_num_exp : int -> num -> string

Approximate a number by a decimal. The first argument is the required precision. The second argument is the number to approximate. Num.approx_num_fix uses decimal notation; the first argument is the number of digits after the decimal point. approx_num_exp uses scientific (exponential) notation; the first argument is the number of digits in the mantissa.
