Math::BigInt::FastCalc(3pm)	 Perl Programmers Reference Guide     Math::BigInt::FastCalc(3pm)

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

       Separated from BigInt and shaped API with the help of John Peacock.
