I have completed a non-optimized working version of the BigDecimal library.
I have been tracking the development on my GitHub account at:
http://github.com/petebacondarwin/ironruby/network/. I have merged the
BigDecimal stuff (currently on bigdecimal branch) with the master branch
(into temp1 branch).
[This is a fork of myabc's (Alex Coles) mirror of the IronRuby subversion
repository. He appears to be kindly tracking the subversion commits
reasonably regularly. I had planned to do this but I am having problems
with git-svn on Windows.]
The library currently passes all the bigdecimal rubyspecs after some tweaks.
These tweaks are currently tracked in my rubyspec fork also on GitHub at:
http://github.com/petebacondarwin/rubyspec/network/. It would be great if I
could get these changes pulled into the standard repository. So far my pull
requests have been ignored. Perhaps if I can get them into the ironruby or
jimdeville forks then they will make it into the rubyspec one at some point?
I will do a little work on the documentation and obvious bug and
optimizations before I submit it to the subversion repository. I am keen to
get some feedback, criticism and suggestions. I am no computer scientist
and so the implementation, though following reasonably closely to the C
implementation, are likely to have plenty of room for improvement.
It would be great if someone could do a review of the code and let me know
what needs work. Please get in touch if you want any explanations of what
is going on.
