NAME

       Math::BigInt::FastCalc - Math::BigInt::Calc with some XS for more speed

SYNOPSIS

       Provides support for big integer calculations. Not intended to be used by other modules.
       Other modules which sport the same functions can also be used to support Math::BigInt,
       like Math::BigInt::GMP or Math::BigInt::Pari.

DESCRIPTION

       In order to allow for multiple big integer libraries, Math::BigInt was rewritten to use
       library modules for core math routines. Any module which follows the same API as this can
       be used instead by using the following:

               use Math::BigInt lib => 'libname';

       'libname' is either the long name ('Math::BigInt::Pari'), or only the short version like
       'Pari'. To use this library:

               use Math::BigInt lib => 'FastCalc';

       Note that from Math::BigInt v1.76 onwards, FastCalc will be loaded automatically, if
       possible.

STORAGE

       FastCalc works exactly like Calc, in stores the numbers in decimal form, chopped into
       parts.

METHODS

       The following functions are now implemented in FastCalc.xs:

               _is_odd         _is_even        _is_one         _is_zero
               _is_two         _is_ten
               _zero           _one            _two            _ten
               _acmp           _len
               _inc            _dec
               __strip_zeros   _copy
