I'm developing for the KDE-3.5 release a wrapper library of the GNU
Multiprecision library (GMP) to be used by the KCalc calculator.

Now I was thinking whether it might be useful for other projects, too. At
this stage it is still in development, but most features already work and
can be tested. (Please test it!)

The library defines a class called "KNumber" which encapsulates more or
less transparently (arbitrary length) integers, fractions or floating
point numbers, and error events. You can find the library in


An example that covers most features can be found in


I would appreciate any comments: Could this be useful for you? What can be
enhanced? How should the API look like etc. etc.
