 Precision Plugin

I am releasing my freeware Precision Plugin for PPC and Carbon
REALbasic projects. It is a light version of my MPCalc plugin, but is
not based on an RPN calculator interface. Rather it is more like C in
its behavior. As an example, here's how you would divide two very large
numbers at a precision of 20. The first argument number is divided by
the second.

dim result As String
MPLsetPrecision 20
result=MPLdiv("1.234567e2538", "5.6789e1234")

You would find in result the string:


You can do an MPLsetPrecision up to 30000. Of course, computations go
slowly at large precisions.

Precision Plugin has almost all the REALbasic functions, but at much
higher precisions. It also has flow control functions for looping. And
functions can be nested. There is extensive checking of inputs to catch
incipient mathematical errors or overflow or underflow.
