Module std.bigint

Arbitrary-precision ('bignum') arithmetic.

Performance is optimized for numbers below ~1000 decimal digits. For X86 machines, highly optimised assembly routines are used.

The following algorithms are currently implemented:

  • Karatsuba multiplication
  • Squaring is optimized independently of multiplication
  • Divide-and-conquer division
  • Binary exponentiation

For very large numbers, consider using the GMP library instead.
