CTAN update: bnumexpr

Date: October 15, 2015 7:36:13 PM CEST
Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the bnumexpr package. Version number: 1.2a 2015-10-14 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Extends eTeX’s \numexpr...\relax construct to big integers Announcement text:
The package bnumexpr allows _expandable_ computations with big integers, the four infix operators +, -, *, / (which does rounded division), the power operators ^ or **, the factorial !, the truncated division //, and its associated modulo /:. For example: \thebnumexpr (92874927979^5-3197927979^6)/30!\relax outputs -4006240736596543944035189. By default the underlying arithmetic macros are the ones provided by package xintcore [1] (its release 1.2 is required). [1] http://www.ctan.org/pkg/xint bnumexpr has only one option _custom_ which says to not load xintcore, and a command \bnumexprsetup to inform the package which macros to use if not those from xintcore. This is a breaking release: some options and commands from v1.1 are not defined anymore (as \bnumexprsetup provides a new interface), and documents which used them will need updating.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/bnumexpr More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/bnumexpr We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Ina Dau

bnumexpr – Extends ’s \numexpr...\relax construct to big integers

The package extends ε- \numexpr...\relax operation to allow big integers, powers, factorials, truncated division and its associated modulo.

By default, bnumexpr loads package xintcore (part of the xint bundle) and uses its arithmetic macros.
