Freshmeat page:


Purenum is a C++ bignum library for programmers. Its unlimited-width Integer type works with all of the C++ math operators (+ and / and *= etc.) but unlike the int type there can never be overflow errors. Division by zero and running out of memory are catchable exceptions. Optimized inline code is used and the software Integer operations for single-width values run almost as quickly as hardware int operations do. An Array type provides for resizeable arrays of bignums.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
