Light Weight, Fast Code for Arbitrary Precision Arithmetic
Based partly on Knuth's Seminumerical Algorithms and written in C, BigMath aims to be light-weight and fast. Its original implementation was for use within a kernel extension - thus size and speed were essential. BigMath supports only integer math, including add, sub, mul, div, mod, modpow, modinv, pow, gcd, factorial, radix conversion, scientific notation and various comparisons.
