./devel/gmp, Library for arbitrary precision arithmetic

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 6.1.2, Package name: gmp-6.1.2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

GNU MP is a library for arbitrary precision arithmetic, operating on signed
integers, rational numbers, and floating point numbers. It has a rich set
of functions, and the functions have a regular interface.

GNU MP is designed to be as fast as possible, both for small operands and for
huge operands. The speed is achieved by using fullwords as the basic
arithmetic type, by using fast algorithms, by carefully optimized assembly
code for the most common inner loops for a lots of CPUs, and by a general
emphasis on speed (instead of simplicity or elegance).

The speed of GNU MP is believed to be faster than any other similar library.
The advantage for GNU MP increases with the operand sizes for certain
operations, since GNU MP in many cases has asymptotically faster algorithms.

Removed Darwin from MPN-generic hack as it builds correctly without it. \ 
Configure failed for newer CPUs when generic was enabled.

Log message:
Updated gmp to 6.1.2.

Changes between GMP version 6.1.1 and 6.1.2

  * Mini-GMP: Fixed a division bug, which on a machine with 64-bit
    unsigned long affects approximately 1 out of 2^32 divisors.

  * Mini-GMP: Fix mpz_set_str crash on inputs with a large number of
    leading zeros. Also stricter input validation, rejecting inputs
    with no digits.

  * Handle more systems which require PIC code in static libraries (e.g.,
    "hardened" Gentoo and Debian 9).

  * Configuration for arm (-32 and -64) has been rewritten, fixing poor
    code selection for many CPUs.

  * Mini-GMP: Updated to the latest development version, including
    new functions mpn_com and mpn_neg.

  * None, except for arm CPUs affected by the configuration rewrite.

Log message:
Changes in GMP 6.1.1

* Make Intel Broadwell configurations work on Windows.

* Work around faulty cpuid on some recent Intel chips (this allows GMP to run on \ 
Skylake Pentiums).
* Support thumb-less ARM chips.
