kcalc, canuse this. Note that kspread uses kcalc now to compute numbers (I 
think), so both application can banefit from this.

Also kstars can use this (the distance the sun traveled in 10^3 years).

Think about the i18n teams also.

Since I did not know such beast existed. I wrote this code as part of an 
assignment in college. 

The library has also a c++ wrapper, so no work is needed to usethis inside 

I have tested the lib, it's fast. It did 6 millions i++ in 2 secs here (my 
class did it in 1 minute and a half). However, when I tried to test 
multiplications I used a factorial function, and it returned a wrong value. 

This lib has no way of representing numbers in different ways (like mine 
does), and does not support munbers in different bases.
