Ticket #280 (closed RFC: fixed)
|Reported by:||whiteknight||Owned by:||rurban|
I've been idly tinkering with creating a BigNum PMC. Due to a series of naming conflicts I'm going to have to delete src/bignum.c and bignum.h before I can really start testing it and maybe commit it.
I mentioned this on IRC yesterday, and chromatic said that it was redundant to have both a BigNum PMC and a BigInt PMC. If there is redundancy between them and we only wanted one, I say we should have a BigNum because it's more general, and we can ditch BigInt.
So here's the question: Is it worthwhile to write a BigNum PMC? If so, do we want to keep both BigNum and BigInt types separate? Input appreciated.
